The Seven Arch Bridge, Rearsby
although only six arches can be seen today. The original wooden packhorse bridge, which would have been medieval, was replaced in 1714 by this stone one. It is believed that it took six men nine days to complete it at a total cost of 11 2s 2d. The brook it crosses is choked with watercress in this photograph. The white-painted concrete posts mark the line of Brook Side.
