The 184-year old Copley Bridge has collapsed after torrential downpours and flooding engulfed Calderdale.

The Grade II listed bridge, built in 1831 by Richard Kennett-Dawson, the last lord of the Manor of Copley, led to the redundant St Stephen’s Church and also served an old toll house which was converted into a dwelling some years ago.

As the pictures show, some of the bridge is still standing but much succumbed to the record river levels recorded across the weekend.
