Botcherby Bridge


Botcherby Bridge carries Warwick Road (A69) over the River Petteril. The current bridge has a plaque commemorating it's opening in June 1932. There have been earlier bridges here; Botcherby Bridge is marked on G.Smith’s 1746 map of Carlisle and a later bridge of 1817 needed rebuilding after flood damage in 1822.[1]
