22/69 Footbridge across
Riding Mill Burn
40 metres north of
St. James' Church


Packhorse Bridge, probably C17 but incorporating earlier fabric. Roughly
squared stone with tooled stone parapet. Single segmental arch, chamfered
parapet of large blocks clamped together. The more widely splayed south
abutment has a drain with a stone spout on the west.
Known locally as the 'Roman Bridge', and sited on the line of Dere Street.
The arch and north abutment may be C17 (1603 : OS record card) with parapet
rebuilt in C18 or C19, but the south abutment incorporates at least 2 phases
of medieval or earlier masonry.
