Bridge. 1422, probably rebuilt 1565-90, much repaired C17, widened 1792.
Older bridge for William de Burgh of Brough Hall (qv), widening by John Carr
of York. Sandstone ashlar. 3 arches separated by triangular cutwaters with
hollow-chamfered tops sweeping up to canted pedestrian retreats. Band.
Parapets with triangular coping terminating in circular bollards, the
downstream parapet curving outwards in plan. Older bridge exposed on upstream side:
central 2 arches of 2 slightly-pointed chamfered orders, outer arches
semicircular and faced with C18 stonework. Undersides of earlier arches
bear masons' marks. The Carr bridge on downstream side: 3 semicircular
arches and 1 segmental arch, with torus archivolts. Small barrel-vaulted
chamber in spandrel adjacent to southernmost arch on downstream side. The
contract for building the bridge survives in the County Record Office.
There was a chantry chapel, dedicated to St Anne, founded in 1505, on the
south-east side of the medieval bridge. Part of downstream parapet
dismantled at time of resurvey. Scheduled as an Ancient Monument. Partly
in the parish of Brompton-on-Swale. E Jervoise, Ancient Bridges of The
North of England, (1931), p 87. York Georgian Society, The Works in
