Crook of Lune Bridge

(Formerly listed as Crook of Lune Bridge, that part in Sedbergh CP)


Public road bridge over River Lune. Believed to be C16 or
earlier; altered. Roughly coursed mixed rubble. Two slightly
asymmetrical segmental arches with voussoirs of long thin
rubble and stone-slate arch-bands, springing from a pier and
plinth with triangular cutwaters both up- and downstream,
carried up as battered triangular buttresses. Humped and
unusually narrow deck (approx. 2 metres), rising from west end
and protected by re-built parapets of coursed rubble, curved
outwards over splayed abutments. Forms part of ancient
north-south route along Lunesdale, used in C17 and C18 by
drovers. A very picturesque feature in this setting.
