M62 from Scammonden Bridge

View of the M62 near Huddersfield from Scammonden dam Bridge which carries the B6114 over the motorway. Scammonden dam bridge is directly above Scammonden dam which carries the motorway across Scammonden reservoir.

The bridge is 120ft high, or 40 metres for those in metric land, and is 656ft long (200 metres)

Opened in 1970 and built by McAlpines the view from the top is stunning but sadly its seen the death of many folk who have jumped off the top. On the day I was there a car stopped and asked me if I was okay as I stood on the bridge taking photos!

Thank you nice ladies for thinking about others.
