This is an old West Riding County bridge liability marker, located by the roadside near the church at Cowgill. They were placed each side of road bridges indicating where county highway responsibility for the bridge started and ended. Beyond the marker, local highway districts were responsible for maintaining the road surface. Another surviving example stands at the end of the south parapet of Grassington Bridge.
