New loading staithes on the canal.

Built in 1987 for loading the opencast coal onto canal barges for transport to Ferrybridge Power Station. Built east of the Caroline Bridge where canal has been widened. This view, looking west, shows the canal bridge in the background.
The staithes were demolished in 2003.
