In Ambleside in the Lake District we were delighted to find this bridge across the River Rothay. The following commentary is borrowed from a Flickr entry:

"This single arch of local slate, now Grade II Listed, replaces a bridge swept away by a flood in 1884 (as were the other bridges over the Rothay).

"As the name suggests, the footbridge linked a mill with its workforce in Ambleside, so had to be replaced rapidly; the mill owner's gardeners managed it within a week. However, it seems that was just the arch itself, and the parapets were added later.

"Note that this is not specifically a packhorse bridge; no doubt goods were carried across it, sometimes by horse, but it wasn't built for that purpose and it isn't on a long-distance route to anywhere."

It was a lovely place to be despite the overcast weather.
