CARLETON BRIDGE

DESCRIPTION + /

Essentially single-phased masonry arch road bridge and associated causeways carrying the historic road south out of Skipton across the River Aire and its floodplain. A bridge is recorded at this location in 1647, but the present structure dates to 1825-7 to designs by Bernard Hartley I and II, joint county Bridge Surveyors for the West Riding; the parapets to the main arch, originally metal railings, were replaced in stone in 1907-08. A temporary timber bridge was erected whilst the new stone bridge was built; piles for the structure possibly survive downstream.
