Looking for references about this bridge, one comes across conflicting information. One source suggest that the bridge is on an old trade route between Ilkley and Ripon, whilst another puts the bridge on a monastic route between Bolton Priory and Fountains Abbey. The latter seems the more likely as the bridge lines up with old tracks radiating from Fountains, and the path/track etc NE from here goes along Monk Ing Road towards an old river crossing at Summerbridge.
