Slater’s Bridge

Slater’s Bridge can be found at Little Langdale near Ambleside, Cumbria. It is a slate packhorse crossing dating back to the 17th century, and became a listed building in 1967. The bridge is thought to have been created by miners working in the nearby Tilberthwaite Fells. Alexander Craig Gibson (folklorist and antiquarian) called it “an exquisite and unique specimen of a style of bridge all but extinct, and a century later, Alfred Wainwright called it “the most picturesque footbridge in Lakeland.”
