Former road bridge over Wray Brook
Former road bridge over Wray Brook
The newly-opened Wray Valley Trail offers this view of a listed bridge that would probably have carried the main road (now the A382) across the Wray Brook before the road's current alignment. However, it doesn't appear to carry the road on the 1886 1:2500 edition of the OS map. It can also be spotted in SX7784 : Cattle by the Wray Valley Trail. "Circa mid C19. Granite rubble with dressed voussoirs to the arches and large curved coping stones. Single span, shallow segmental arch with projecting keystone and cranked parapets" LinkExternal link .

In the background is the wooded Wray Cleave.
