User-Submitted Notes

The bridge is said to be the oldest stone bridge in the North Yorkshire Moors and was built in the 13th century to provide access over “Black Beck” into Baysdale Abbey. This name is misleading it was in fact was nothing more than a small Cistercian Priory for twelve nuns and a prioress. This nunnery has long since disappeared with only the entrance bridge surviving. However the location which now consists of a farm and holiday homes retains the name Baysdale Abbey.
