Will bridge number 97 of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal survive 2012?
Probably not looking at the way it is being dismantled piece by piece. Not sure if it is local yobs taking the bricks and dropping them into the canal or thieves stealing the bricks which may be valuable due to their age. But one thing is certain; the bridge is losing bricks quicker than William Hague is losing the hairs from his shiny head.
It is sad to think this bridge stood during the birth of the Industrial Revolution, the abolition of slavery, two world wars, man taking his first steps on the moon and even the decimation of Britain at the hands of Nu-Labour from 1997 to 2010 but it is now succumbing to total destruction at the hands of sub-humans.
