Brancepeth Bridge

Brancepeth Bridge, to the west of Brancepeth Castle, carries the road (the old route of the A690) over Stockley Burn (aka Brancepeth Beck). The castellated sandstone bridge was built in the early-mid 19th century, and was a rebuilding of an earlier bridge here. The bridge is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
