“Castleford Bridge, Castleford”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

The Castleford Bridge is a very nice bridge over the River Aire. It is just off the roundabout from Carlton Lanes Shopping Centre. There is an old boat stood there in the water that must have crashed years and years ago. You don't have to pay to cross it, so that is always good. It is good to bring a camera to take nice photographs of the river. At the other side there is a board saying all of the different fish and creatures that live in the river. It is a short visit though.

“Bridge over the river Aire”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is simply a bridge next to a disused flour mill that attracts people feeding gulls and pigeons. It is a short cut home and it gives you a feeling of content watching the river flow past. There is a sunken barge that is visible most days and when you can`t see it start to worry as the river is high! The only down side is the bridge attracts a certain kind with beer cans who have nothing better to do and people with dogs that fowl the wooden walkway. It is fun to cross after dark as it is lit up on the sides. There were lamps, but the low life who use this bridge smashed them ages ago and they were never replaced.

“Wow.....a bridge!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

I have to agree with unathletico's comments below, i suppose its nice as bridges go but the crossing which was placed for people to cross when the bridge was built creates absolute traffic chaos at anytime of the day.

“It's a bridge”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

Look left, you can see houses, look right, you can see some of the town, look down you can see the river. On the plus side you can go up to xscape and have some fun. Gets 5/5 for value as you don't have to pay to use it

“Worth a Look”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

A modern bridge across the busy river saves using the road bridge which is very busy for the people of Castleford. It really fits in with the surroundings worth a look if in the area.
