Sosgill Bridge, St John's in the Vale


Sosgill Bridge over St John's Beck is located about a quarter of a mile south-west of Bram Cragg (farm) in St John's in the Vale. The humped-back bridge, made from slate rubble, was built in the 18th century, originally as a packhorse bridge.[1] The bridge is Grade II listed. There is another 18th century packhorse bridge over St John's Beck, less than half a mile upstream.
