More about this scene


Caption for Ferrybridge, The Bridge C1955: It is hard to believe that the arched bridge, built in 1797 by John Carr of York, used to carry all the main Great North road traffic. It also gave access to Fryston Hall nearby, which was demolished in 1931 when the power station was extended. Each year the generating station consumes 5 million tons of coal.
