The bridge over the River Brue on River Road between Mark and Burtle has been given the imaginative name of River Bridge.

River Road stretches away to the north as a 2-km long straight, albeit one which has a nasty little bump where Tile House Road turns off to the left. However, to the south of the bridge the road turns sharply eastwards towards Burtle, with Long Moor Drove heading west. At this junction is a rather unusual old 'notice', recording the death of a man on the bridge over a century ago. The bridge is a small stone arch, with the road turning sharp left at a T-junction on the south bank. Whilst the bridge is almost wide enough for two cars to pass, the junction and bend beyond mean that it is safer to hold back for oncoming traffic!
