L is for Leeds Centenary Bridge
The Leeds Centenary footbridge is a cable stay bridge, with a single support tower on the southern bank of the river. It was opened in 1992 and was the first bridge to be built over the river in the city centre for over 100 years.
This is the approach from "The Calls" area.
The bridge spans the river Aire and here we are looking upstream towards the city.
Looking downstream here towards Crown Point Bridge.
In the opposite direction looking from Crown Point Bridge back towards the Centenary Bridge.
