Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud and Wakefield Council leader Coun Peter Box declared the bridge across the River Aire open in July 2008, after a scheme spanning five years.

It was constructed as part of The Castleford Project, a restoration programme involving eight enterprises which it was hoped would act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the town, which lost much of its industry with the mine closures.

Channel 4 television series 'Kevin McCloud and the Big Town Plan' followed the project, which started in 2003.

Ten years on, we are looking at its impact - and we'd like to know your views.
