River Rothay and Miller Bridge, Ambleside
River Rothay and Miller Bridge, Ambleside
The Rothay is a spate river whose level can rise dramatically during, or after, periods of heavy rainfall. The original Miller Bridge was downstream of here and led straight to the major employer of the mill. That bridge was swept away by a flood in 1884 (as were the other bridges over the Rothay) and was replaced by this single arched bridge made of local slate. It is a grade II listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 450576 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
