History

The remains of the Monk Bridge Viaduct run parallel to Whitehall Road on the other side of Holbeck. It was originally built as an access route into the old Leeds Central Station, which stood on the site of the Wellington Place office development, and carried the railway over both the River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. It was the same railway company, the London North Western, who built it in 1846. The station itself closed in the 1960s, when the last train ran over the viaduct. It has been abandoned ever since.
