New Bridge

Fish Farm

This used to be a 3 arched bridge, 20m wide, but the north arch has been lost and the other arches are choked with gravel. Presumably the river used to cross the valley but was diverted by the railway and now is only 8m? wide beside the cottages.

The mill race beside the road is controlled by a 1m wide sluice which is now kept fully open. The river now crosses the valley over a mill dam and under an arched timber bridge only 3.6m wide. Beck Isle bridge is 24m wide. Please note the river is virtually blocked at the bottom of the picture.
