Primary / Secondary References

Plate 69 is a typical winter image from October 1963 looking north towards Rise Hill Tunnel south portal (see SCRCA structure 254130).  In the foreground is Bridge 99 in course of reconstruction.  The original stone arch of 1873 had to be rebuilt.  To allow continuance of traffic, temporary weighbeams were inserted whilst work proceeded beneath.  It is likely that the work was conducted by staff from Skipton District Engineer's Office.  The weighbeams would be on loan from a girder yard such as those set up by the Midland Company at Leeds and Lenton, where suitable recoverable items of steel, wrought iron or cast iron were stored.

Plate 70 is a side view showing the heavy propping of the abutments during reconstruction.  The arch centring has been installed in readiness for brickwork to form the new arch replacing the original stone arch, and stone facing was provided.  Note the malleable iron fencing at each side of the road, which had been adopted as standard in 1909.

To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
