Tadcaster Bridge on the River Wharfe. This joins the River Ouse 9km downstream. Note the width of the river compared with the bridge. See how the banks have encroached - I see this in many places.
This bridge collapsed on 29th December 2015. As 4 out of 7 arches were blocked I am not surprised. Maintenance required.
Compare this with Selby to see how silt accumulates. At least this has not been built on.
