Footage of re-opened historic bridge in Rochdale

A bridge built in the 14th Century has reopened after it was hidden from view for more than a century.

The crossing in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, was concreted over in 1904 when the tram network expanded.

Believed to have been built about 1324, it re-opened to pedestrians after a £5 million project, which also exposed a section of the River Roch in the town.
