Greta Bridge

  • Description

    "The inns adjacent to the crossing of the River Greta provided the traditional second overnight stop of the mail coach from London to Carlisle. At one time there were three inns, two of which were mentioned by Charles Dickens in Nicholas Nickleby. The Roman station nearby is evidence that the river has been crossed here since Roman times."
