It's a bridge

This is a nice bridge. But it is just a bridge. I d say it's probably nice than 60 percent of the bridges I've been on but it is just a bridge

Lovely. It might just be a bridge, a way to traverse the river, but as bridges go it is worth a look. A modern foot bridge with seating allowing you to take a load off and watch the river run past and observe the local wildlife (I do mean both the birds/animals and the drunks).

At the end of the day - It's just a bridge. But it's a nice bridge; and if you're looking for somewhere to pass the time, or eat out in the open with a nice view, you can't go far wrong with Cas bridge.

Modern bridge built over the AIre at Cass'. The views aren't owt special unless you like to look at Catleford, which is pretty boring tbh.

If you visit Castleford, please take a stroll across our footbridge and experience the wharf close up. Try to combine this with a visit to the old flour mill on one of their open days, very enjoyable.

I've been over this bridge many times as I live nearby, but only once or twice have I sat to admire it. The walk is very good as you can sit down and see the old flour mill and the shipwreck that has been there for many years. Worth a visit.

Beautiful bridge but what for there's a bridge over the same river 200 yards away.causing no end of congestion,in a space of 500 yards there's 2 roundabouts and 3 sets of traffic lights,all to accommodate the bridge.Beautiful but not required money wasted.
