It's a wonderful S shaped Footbridge opened in 2008 crossing Castleford's wide River Aire. Allowing pedestrians to experience the size power and sounds of the water rushing below as the bridge is built close to a weir. The footbridge is designed to be more like a seaside pier. It has ample seating and designed so visitors can stop and admire the view and watch out for Heron, Kingfisher, and many other birds that frequent the river. Or perhaps have a friendly chat with the locals. The footbridge crosses over to a group of terrace houses, built on a piece of land surrounded by water nicknamed Duck Island. A short walk along the river bank will lead to a small wildlife garden then onto a spot where the two rivers meet the Aire & Calder plus the Canal. The best part of industrial Castleford to take a walk. then continue along the riverbank or canal towpath The bridge itself lacks direction signposts plus seating on the river bank, and the riverside footpath is a poor place to walk in wet weather. Again the bridge requires a spot of paint and varnish, a great place to walk relax or look out for wildlife a main attraction to the town itself however, the local council needs to finish the job off.and make the splendid river Aire it's a main attraction.. . Despite it's shortcomings, the bridge and surrounding countryside is worthy of a visit..It still warrants a 5 star excellent review off me,despite it's shortcomings.. Hey!! It's free to visit too..
