We love 'em all!

Aldwark Bridge, between Little Ouseburn and Aldwark / Linton on Ouse. North Yorkshire.

In 1772 an Act of Parliament was granted for the building of a bridge across the River Ure to replace the ferry, which was not usable in bad weather conditions.   The current toll for cars has recently gone up and now (Dec 2002) is 15p.   Thanks to Tim Elwess, who had to make a 25 mile diversion due to having no change, for this information.   It just shows that tolls are not always green.  And shame on the toll keeper for not letting him through with a promise to pay next time he passed.   (Since August 2005 the toll has been 40p.  Thanks to Keith Renicor.)
