Barnsley Canal - Clay Royd Bridge

Clay Royd* Bridge is between Haw Park Bridge (Sike Lane / Stoneheaps Plantation) and Blue Bridge. It can be reached from Walton and Cold Hiendley via the Trans Pennine Trail and from Anglers Country Park through Haw Park Woods.
(* 'royd' is an old Yorkshire term for a clearing.)

The towpath back to Walton was restored in May 2001 as part of the Trans Pennine Trail. Photographed August 2000.
