ROYAL AND FOUNTAINS
5/49 Rough Bridge
approximately 100 metres
south-east of Lindrick
Bridge. Probably mid C18, for John or William Aislabie of Studley Royal
House. Gritstone and limestone rubble. 2 round arches, one wide and one
narrow. Parapet of massive boulders, roughly-dressed on inner face. The
soffits are rendered with cement and lined to imitate blocks, probably C20.
The bridge carried the path between Studley Royal House (demolished) and the
large kitchen gardens and greenhouses which surrounded Wheatbrig House (qv)
over the Dale, a narrow wooded dry valley which links the Lindrick Gate and
the Ripon drive. The plan is very similar to Galand Bridge, Markington with
Wallerthwaite (qv) on the south side of the Park close to Fountains Abbey
