Alas it is not the forever breaking down Coxhead Swing Bridge, but Moss Swing Bridge (218) at Rodley, that has no record of ever being out of action.

The new bridge, Canal & River Trust state 'will be manually operated and electronically powered', a contact number will also be provided to call in the case of an emergency—when it does break down!
