7/96 Halfpenny Bridge
22.2.1977 (formerly listed under
Oldham Road (West Side))


Foot bridge. 1831. Wrought and cast iron, stone and brick.
A shallow segmental riveted girder supports another which
forms the road level. Parapet of stout cast iron railings
with crested lattice panels. At west end three fluted
column cast iron posts at the head of a flight of stone
steps with thick rusticated side walls. The road bed, of
York stone paving, continues into a cobbled path at east

Arm and is of particular interest as a rare survival of a
toll bridge over a canal. Plaque commemorates restoration
of 1978.
