Borough Bridge :: Shared Description

The listing of the bridge (Grade II) includes: "It was timber at the time of the Battle of Boroughbridge 1322 but had been rebuilt in stone by mid C16. Constantly repaired throughout the C17-C18, it was widened to nearly twice its original width in 1785 to the designs of John Carr for the sum of £420. The further widening of 1969 left intact the 3 arches, the outer two of which are slightly pointed, each having 5 wide ribs, and the lower part of the chamfered cutwaters to the east side."
