SCRCA structure 266550: Bridge SAC/180A - Kirkby Stephen Station footbridge (passengers only)

SCRCA Location Introduction

The footbridge currently located at Kirkby Stephen Station was originally built in 1895 for the Midland Railway Company's station at Guiseley in West Yorkshire. It was removed from Guiseley circa 1996, prior to the electrification of the Wharfedale and Airedale lines. Following its dismantling, the bridge was stored at a yard in Huddersfield. It was subsequently transported to Kirkby Stephen station by low-loader and craned into its new position on Friday 26th November 1999.
