Middleton Hall Bridge is crosses the Middleton Hall Beck (a tributary into the River Lune) on the A683 between Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh. Cumbria County Council invested in the project to replace Middleton Hall Bridge, which was severely damaged beyond repair during Storm Desmond.
The replacement of an existing bridge that was partially demolished in the Storm Desmond Floods in 2015. The works involved the removal of the temporary bridge that was installed after the floods and the design and build of a new culverted structure to accommodate two-way traffic once more.
This bridge is located on a very popular ‘A’ road within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and used by locals, tourists and cyclists alike
The bridge is also located very close to a potential roman road route, but the exact route was not known. It is also extremely close to some medieval fishponds which are of important archaeological interest.
