Bridge. Sandstone ashlar. There was a bridge at this point over the River Ure by
C12. It was timber at the time of the Battle of Boroughbridge 1322 but had been
rebuilt in stone by mid C16. Constantly repaired throughout the C17-C18, it was
widened to nearly twice its original width in 1785 to the designs of John Carr for
the sum of £420. The further widening of 1969 left intact the 3 arches, the outer
two of which are slightly pointed, each having 5 wide ribs, and the lower part of the
chamfered cutwaters to the east side. The semi-circular cutwaters to the west appear
to have been totally rebuilt. The stone east parapet may have been reused in the
1969 widening.
