“Nice architecture and views”
Review of Castleford Bridge

Ranked #9 of 21 things to do in Castleford
Attraction details
Reviewed September 16, 2017 via mobile

The multi-award winning footbridge offers a relaxing passage across the river, with a chance to look at the historic flour mill, the weir, and the fish and eel ladders, as well as the children's favourite, Thomas, the wrecked barge underneath the bridge.

Don't go too far out of your way to visit this Expensive pedestrian bridge! Not much to say about this except maybe the councils money could have been better spent. Built over the river Aire its 130m long and in a S-shape (£4.8m project) next to the old mill. If you found this helpful I'm on Insta at smudge006

This isn't a bad location to take a look at if you aren't from around Castleford. One of the best ways to view it is when it is at it's most lovely on a summer's day or when it is at its extreme. A case in point, when a year ago, I think the bridge was flooded.

This is a bridge that takes you from nowhere very much to nowhere at all so from a cost per crossing point of view it's very hard to justify but in the heady days at the turn of the century it was probably seen as the start of something more.
Okay, a very clever structure over a fast flowing wier - nice for a stroll I suppose but when you get to the far side all you can do is turn around and come back.

Interesting bridge construction making the most of the river views and surrounding buildings. Probably the best thing Castleford has to offer, it was only a stop off for us on our journey home.
