Middle Walton.

The disused railway bridge across Oakenshaw Lane. The line (now dismantled) linked the old Midland line with the main East Coast spur line from Doncaster to Leeds.
The junction was known as West Riding Junction. [2000]

Both lines are still in use today but not connected at this junction.
The East Coast Main Line Line is regularly used for passenger trains.
The Midland Line served Monckton Coke and Chemical Works at Royston, South Yorkshire, until the works was closed in 2014.

Just the other side of the bridge to the right, the Sandal Curves public footpath connects Oakenshaw Lane with Sandal & Agbrigg Railway Station (Local trains serving Leeds, Wakefield, Doncaster, Sheffield and intermediate stations.). The footpath runs along part of the course of the old railway track.
