Listed Bridges in the Lake District National Park

Courtesy of Stephen Read, Levens Local History Society

All the bridges are Grade II listed except Bridge House (Lakes Parish – Ambleside) which is Grade I, and Slaters Bridge (Coniston and Lakes – Langdale Parishes), Bridge over Rydall Beck at Rydal Hall (Lakes -Rydal & Loughrigg Parish), and Newby Bridge (Staveley in Cartmel Parish) which are all Grade II*.

You can find out more about them – a description, location, maps and photos if available – on the British Listed Buildings website (search by county and then parish) or on the National Heritage List for England (search by name).

Stone bridges built before 1700 and still surviving in Cumbria are listed, described and photographed in the Historic Bridges of Britain website.
