Bridge over Wreigh Burn, Thropton


The stone hump-backed bridge over the Wreigh Burn at Thropton was built in 1810. It was built by George Robson, a local Catholic landowner, at a cost of £365. The walls at the end of the bridge were added later, in the 19th century.[1] The bridge now carries the B6143 road and there is an adjacent wooden footbridge. The bridge is Grade II listed.
