Looks very neglected

It is neglected Peter like a lot of things on the Leeds Liverpool canal
But having said that the farmer still uses it to get his tractor across, it easily opens with a bit of a tug.
You can see it being used on this excellent historical video below

I wouldn't like to drive a tractor over that bridge, it looks really unsafe! The background is a lovely scene though, very calm and peaceful.

As you say Mick excellent video, I've passed that pull across bridge a few times but never seen it working before
