Packhorse Bridge, Ivegill

This humped-back foot bridge over the River Ive at Ivegill is a former packhorse bridge, thought to date from the early 18th century.[1] The bridge is gated, presumably leading to private land. A stone road bridge over the river is located a short distance upstream. The bridge is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
