I noticed yesterday that on Open Street Map (OSM) and Google Earth that it appears that the old railway bridge over River Wharfe had been re-surfaced, While OSM showed a path (track) onto the bridge from Thorpe Arch Trading Estate.

Today while on the way back, from the club ride, I went over the bridge and have included 2 photos (1st shows the bridge and the 2nd one a view from the bridge). I also include an overview map of the route I took (Red - tarmac surfaced, Blue - ~300 metres off road)

The off road has been well used by the locals, which looks to be used mainly by mountain bikes. The first part was grass track, with the rest be well defined, and was firm under foot with a suprising climb up a banking onto a plato to the railway track itself.
