Matty Benns - this Thursday

Matty Benn's Bridge

Come and run in the sun this Thursday near Matty Benns (or Monks) Bridge and Worm Gill (off the Cold Fell Road).

Visit Cumbria tells us "Monk’s Bridge on Cold Fell is the oldest packhorse bridge in Cumbria, and crosses Friar Gill where it passes through a narrow deep chasm. It was built for the monks of Calder Abbey, who would have crossed it on their many journeys. Iron ore would have been carried over it from Ennerdale to smithies on the fells to be smelted. The bridge is also known as Matty Benn’s Bridge, after the family Benn who lived nearby."

So there you go - now see you there!
