Skell approximately 500
metres south-east of the
outlet from the Lake,

metres to north
Ford and bridge. Ford c1740 for John Aislabie, bridge probably before 1781
for William Aislabie. Ford: gritstone setts flanked by curbstones.
Approximately 3 metres wide, partly collapsed and silted over at time of
resurvey. For further details see ford 150 metres south-east of Lake
outlet. Bridge: gritstone rubble and boulders, with tufa blocks. Single-
span shallow segmental arch with dressed rubble voussoirs. Rubble crest to
parapet, large boulders to terminals. The stones are mortared but carefully
built up to give the appearance of dry walling. The bridge carries a narrow
bridle or pedestrian pathway and replaced one of c1740 built in a Chinese
Chippendale style, (W T C Walker, personal communication). The route led to
the pagoda in the Chinese Wood further east (demolished).
