Westmorland’s major river, the Eden, has many beautiful stretches from its source in Mallerstang all the way to it confluence with the Eamont, where it flows over the board into Cumberland. (In fairness it also has some splendid stretches beyond there, all the way to the Solway Firth, but they’re outside the scope of this website which focuses on historic Westmorland). However, among all the many competitors for the most beautiful spot on the Eden this one just above Frank’s Bridge in Kirkby Stephen takes some beating.
To reach this spot there’s a pleasant walk from Frank’s Bridge alongside the river. This can be continued either to Hartley or to the woods and the Stenkrith Falls.
This next is the view from Frank’s Bridge looking upstream to the spot shown in the first photograph.
And here is the bridge itself, anciently an important crossing on the “corpse road” from Hartley and Winton to the Parish Church in Kirkby.
Finally, a view downstream from the bridge. As with the photo above of the footpath by the river this one was taken at a different time of year. By the footpath the leaves were just coming through; here still leafless trees.
Some day I’ll try to replace these photos with new ones showing nice blue skies, but there haven’t been too many of those for a while, at least not on the days when I’ve been free to go out with a camera.
