The Medieval Devil's Bridge over the River Lune at Kirkby Lonsdale is now a pedestrian route only. It originally carried A65 until the adjacent Stanley Bridge was opened in 1932.

Prior to the new bridge it needed a road scout to be posted on the structure day and night to direct the traffic over the narrow bridge which only wide enough for one way traffic. When built, it had only needed to be wide enough for horses and small carts.
