    Having an interest in railways, I decided to walk a cycle path from Allerton Bywater to Garforth.
    Was a nice spring day so was in no rush.
    Walking along Lock Lane in Castleford up to Allerton, on walking over the canal bridge I saw Castleford Viaduct (The Iron Bridge to locals), so thought I would go up there and walk along (if I could), the old track bed up to Allerton, joining the cycle path there.

    The viduct is now a well rusting old girl...but for me that only enhances her beauty....and it is hard to believe that it was only 10-15 years ago that trains still ran over this old girl....as to say it is on the 'thin' side is an understatement

    Don't want to bore all of you that aren't into this type of explore, so for that that want to see more pics you can find them here:

    This was a very enjoyable, and a very easy explore for any beginner...and I am now looking for other railways explores near by.
