SEDBERGH HOWGILL LANE, Howgill Crook of Lune Bridge

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

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.
