Cromwell’s Bridge. Before I begin, if you don’t know who Oliver Cromwell is, learn your history. ;-]
Also known as Devil’s Bridge, this packhorse bridge across the River Hodder was built by Sir Richard Shireburn in 1562, replacing a wooden bridge dating from at least 1331. So Cromwell’s Bridge is at least 450 years old! Legend says that it was used by Oliver Cromwell and his 8,000-strong army during his march from Skipton to intercept the Royalists at the Battle of Preston in 1648.
I had to be super careful when shooting. See, the more modern Lower Hodder Bridge, where this photo was shot from, has no pedestrian footway. So I was taking this photo as cars were whizzing past, inches from my back! Nervewracking? Definitely. Worth it, though. =]
