Crook of Lune Bridge


This stone road bridge over the River Lune, near Lowgill in Cumbria, was built in the 16th century or possibly earlier. The bridge formed part of ancient north-south route along Lunesdale, used in the 17th and 18th century by drovers[1] (drovering - moving livestock on foot, such as to market or seasonal grazing grounds). The bridge is Grade II* listed. Note: this is the bridge at the Crook of Lune in Cumbria, not to be confused with the Crook O' Lune by Caton in Lancashire, which is about 20 miles to the south, where there is also a stone road bridge and former rail bridges!
