KIRKBY STEPHEN 15A - Frank's Bridge
Frank's Bridge, a two arch bridge spanning the River Eden in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria.
This is a 17th century corpse road bridge linking Kirkby Stephen with the outlying settements of Hartley and Winton.
The bridge has large stones at one end where the coffin bearers could lay the coffins and heve a rest. The bridge is said to be haunted by Jangling Annas who drowned in the river with her chains after escaping from Hartley Castle.
