...Working for a safe crossing of the River Wharfe at Burley in Wharfedale.
The Burley Bridge Association was formed in 1996 to continue the campaign to build a bridge across the River Wharfe at Burley in Wharfedale. The association may have only been formed as recently as 1996 however efforts to provide a safe means of crossing the River Wharfe have been ongoing for over a century.
As you can see the current crossing is far from ideal at the best of times and most of the time it simply is not safe and has lead to a fatality.
