The Medieval Devil's Bridge over the River Lune at Kirkby Lonsdale is now a pedestrian route only. Indeed, it probably never carried cars as it is barely wide enough for them. It was originally built in the 12th or 13th Century, and only needed to be wide enough for horses and small carts.

New Bridge

The current A65 bridge being renovated in 2010

The new bridge carries the A65 across the river just to the south of the old bridge. Despite the rather colourful cladding seen in the photo, the bridge is old, probably Victorian, although with the renovation work in progress it is difficult to be precise. See Stanley Bridge entry
