Bridge over River Ure. 1562, extensively rebuilt and widened to designs by
John Carr and Mr Gott 1785; repaired 1969. Sandstone ashlar. 3 segmental
arches, 2 pointed cutwaters to east side; semicircular cut-waters, probably
rebuilt, to west. 5 wide ribs beneath outer arches. The parapets rebuilt
over cutwaters which are carried up as buttresses and support the road
surface. The parapets continue beyond the bridge to the north and have
square terminals. The bridge spans the boundary between the parishes of
Boroughbridge and Langthorpe and between the old North and West Ridings.
The rebuilding in 1784-85 was by the 2 County surveyors: John Carr for the
North Riding and Mr Gott for the West. The structure was repaired in 2
halves; work was in progress in 1782-84 but the southern section
subsequently collapsed and had to be rebuilt, presumably to the complete
design by John Carr. The road builder Blind Jack Metcalfe of Knaresborough
is thought to have been involved with the construction.
