Caption for Tickton, The Bridge C1955:
A bridge, complete with a chantry chapel, has existed over the River Hull since the 13th century. It was rebuilt in 1803, when the toll was one shilling. Increased river traffic led to this opening bridge being constructed in 1913, at the same time as the hydraulic pumping house (behind with the tall chimney). Since the opening of the new bypass a hundred yards upstream in 1976, a footbridge has been the only way across the river. Both The Crown and Anchor and the house beside it remain.
