Devil’s Bridge

Another Kirkby evening stroll. The heron was there, fishing in much the same spot as last time.

The water looked cool and inviting. I watched as fish jumped from the water to take flies. I felt sure that I would be able to see them swim away under the water, but I couldn’t. Just once I managed to follow the fish briefly, but it was soon lost against the background of rocks and pebbles.

Under Devil’s Bridge some lads were swimming. Very wise.

  1. The car park round there always seems packed so I assume it’s a popular picnic and river spot. Always thought there would be somewhere to swim although I’ve never stopped there

      There’s a butty wagon there. It’s very popular on the weekend with motorcyclists, when they aren’t steaming along the A65 at 90mph. It seems to be a local right-of-passage for teenagers to jump of the bridge into the river, but there’s a ledge under the water so people have got stuck and drowned. Also – it’s a very long way down.
