Introduction

Selby Toll Bridge was the only crossing of the River Ouse in the Selby area until the Selby bypass opened in 2004, and provided an alternative route over the river.

History

The current bridge was built in 1970 and is a replica of the 1791 bridge. For many years, the bridge was tolled. This caused lengthy tailbacks at the tollgates, often snarling up the entire town. On 21 Sep 1991, to much relief, the tolls were lifted, bringing much relief to the town. However even though the bridge is now free, it is still known locally as the Toll Bridge.
