A Bridge at Burley

History of the campaign to build a bridge at Burley

The first 100 years of effort to construct a footbridge date back at least to 1898 when the former Burley Urban District Council minutes record on November 1st "That the Wharfedale RDC be asked if they will take steps along with burley UDC to get a footbridge over the River Wharfe at Greenholme, seeing that accidents have already occurred, one lately proving fatal".
