CUMBRIAN SINGLE ARCH BRIDGES

 

Cumbria must have thousands of single arch bridges crossing the numerous streams that populate the county. There is also  numerous bridges either carrying railways over roads and streams or roads over railways and the same applies to those along the canals of the county. Each bridge is an indivual built to fit its specific site and to carry its specific load. A lot of the road bridges would be built originally for packhorse and have been widened to allow carts to cross and now carry motor vehicles. Alot are a testomany to their builders that they have suirvived the vast increase in traffic and also the damage caused by flooding that is so common in the county.

 GELTSDALE

Geltsdale is on of the most northern valleys in the Pennines. The River Gelt is formed from New Water and Old Water rivers that start high on the Pennines and join together in Geltsdale before flowing out onto the Solway plain near Carlisle and joins with the River Irthing and eventually the River Eden.

In its lower levels it is crossed by the A69 trunk road from Carlisle to Newcastle and also an older road. A number of other minor roads also cross the river before Geltsdale itself is reached.

Upper Geltsdale is now a wilderness area of moors and is part of the RSPB nature reserve. Going back into the 19th Century it was a hive of activity with coal mines and limekilns working in the area. Roads were constructed to allow carrage of coal across the river to the various limeworks and also local villages for sale.

In the early 20th century Carlisle council decided to use the the clear waters of the valley to supply Carlisle because of the amount of polution in both the river Eden and wells within the city. A reservoir was built at Castle Carrock and the water was piped from the Gelt to there. A 3ft gauge railway was built up part of the valley to allow the movement of material and bridges were constructed to allow it to cross the river.

The river is also crossed by the Newcastle to Carlisle railway on the Geltsdale viaduct.

 bridge geltsdale

OLD WATER BRIDGE GELTSDALE NY 585 572.

This bridge is on the old coal road from the Tindale and Talkin coalfields to supply coal to the SLOATS LIMEWORKS and onward to the Eden valley and Penrith. It  was originally built in1821 when John Wilson was paid 10. 0. 0. to build a bridge over Old Water whilst a road was being built to take coal to the Sloats limekilns.

For more information on the reason behind the building of the road in Geltsdale and the opening of Sloats limeworks see Geltsdale and Croglin Collieries in the Early Nineteenth Century. in British Mining No 108 Memoir 2019 pages 86 - 97.

 

This bridge is kept well maintained by United Utilities as part pf the Geltsdale water scheme.

Lanercost Bridge.  This is two bridges carrying the road from Brampton to Lanercost over Quarry Beck (right handside arch) and River Irthington (lefthand arch) NY 554 633.

Originally there was an island in the river and there was 2 bridges over the river, the northern bridge was stone built and was maintined by the abbey the southern was a wooden bridge. These were replaced by a single bridge s;lightly upstream. This was washed away in late 17th century. Eventually the local justices at the Quarter Sessions listened to the local population and agreed to replace the original bridge, this was in place by 1722 when it required repair. The whole bridge was again replaced in 1725. The cost was £493 2s. and was the work of four north Cumberland masons, Isaac Monkhouse of Castle Sowerby, William Railton of Raughtonhead, Philip Simpson of Sebergham and Jospeh Simpson of Dalston. some of the stone came from earlier bridges. The new bridge survived the devastating floods of November 1771. The northern channel slowly silted up and the monks bridge was no longer needed and the stone was sold by the justices in 1811. The new concreet bridge was built in 1962.
