Coffee Morning: Bridge Lane and the Old Bridge

30th Sep 2022
10:30 am - 11:30 am

Local historian Alex Cockshott talks about this old route, dating from Roman times. For centuries, Bridge Lane has led down to the bridge beyond the ancient ford. The bridge we use today replaced one swept away in floods of 1673. On the far bank the path came down from Middleton. Perhaps travellers late at night might have been guided by light shining from the small window at the back of the Old Castle – now the Manor House.

Tickets may be purchased online through Eventbrite (a booking fee is payable) or in person through the Box Office when the Manor House is open. Tickets may be available on the door but will be subject to availability and admission cannot be guaranteed.
