It is probably medieval in original and was rebuilt in 1717 by George Duck of Danby. It was possible to drive across until a ford was built a few years ago.

The Neville Coat of Arms can be seen on the parapet, and a set of stepping stones run beside the bridge.

  1. We visited Danby Castle on a walk last year. Luckily the owner/current tenant spotted our interest and took us for a mini-tour, which was very good of him. Apparently the rents for the various properties/fields are collected on a special day each year or so, when a special meeting is held in the committee room of the castle! All very traditional and extremely interesting.
