Bridges On The Aln


A small bridge on the minor road from Little Ryle to Alnham it has two earthenware pipes under the road visible on the downstream side. It is situated at a road junction with another road going off to Prendwick to the north. Surrounded by fields with a plantation to the north west it is one of the county's more isolated bridges and is considered inadequate for today's heavier traffic.

Nearby Prendwick was a former Anglo Saxon settlement and was, like the surrounding villages, subject to raiding by the Scots during the period of the Border reivers.
