St Lawrence's Bridge


St Lawrence's Bridge (aka Appleby Bridge) carries Bridge Street over the River Eden in Appleby-in-Westmorland. The present bridge was built in 1889, replacing a much earlier bridge here. When the 'new town' of Boroughgate was established in the 12th century, a bridge was built here to connect it with the 'old town' of Bongate. St Lawrence's Bridge is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
