Packhorse Bridge by Bram Crag

The old stone packhorse bridge over St John's Beck, now a footbridge, is located by Bram Crag (farm) near St John's in the Vale. The hump-backed bridge was built in the 18th century and is Grade II listed.[1] Less than half a mile downstream, is Sosgill Bridge, another 18th century packhorse bridge over St John's Beck.
