SE3883 : Sike Bridge

taken 3 months ago, near to Kirby Wiske, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Sike Bridge
Sike Bridge
Old sandstone bridge over Sike Beck, a small tributary of the River Wiske, which in turn is a small tributary of the River Swale, which frequently backs up these smaller streams when in flood.
The bridge dates from the time when the A167 was Turnpiked in the late 18thC, and is a fairly substantial structure. This southern face has a benchmark carved upon it, in possibly the most awkward to reach place I've ever come across. On the 3rd stone course up from the arch.
