Royston, Barnsley Canal
The site of the infilled former Midland Road Bridge, Royston. In 1934, the original bridge was replaced by an unusual electrically operated lift bridge. The roadway was lifted by mechanisms situated in four corner towers. Midland Road was previously called Senior Lane and the original bridge had been called Senior Lane Bridge. The name was probably changed to Midland Road after the construction of the North Midland Railway.
