Hampsthwaite Bridge

Link to

In its Conservation Area document published 2009 Harrogate Borough Council says "Hampsthwaite Bridge offers an imposing entrance to the village from the north, offering spectacular views across the River Nidd and up the side of this scenic valley. The bridge itself is of stone and has three segmental arches . . . . .in coarsed squared gritstone . . . . .

Initially constructed in 1598 and rebuilt in 1640 with nineteenth century alterations to the parapet. The triangular cutwaters are chamfered at the top and closely set corbals support the overhanging parapet. The southern arch has been widened on the west side to allow a change in the road alignment."


Hampsthwaite Manor (House) (site of?)

The term "Manor" may sometimes refer to a building but, more strictly, it describes an area of land over which a landowner enjoyed manorial rights. Such an owner, however, would often have a Manor "house" standing on the land and this might often be an important building in its locality.

Joiners Arms

Village folklore recalls three public houses as having existed in the village and this accords with early licensing records which reveal in the late 1700s the grant of three licences in the area. The licensees are named but not the premises. Nevertheless, those houses appear to be the Bay Horse Inn at Swincliffe, the Lamb Inn in Church Lane and the Joiner's Arms. How early those houses were established cannot be precisely stated but it may be assumed that the Joiner's Arms has a long history. The Inclosure Map for the 1770s appears to show a building on the site and the house certainly figures on the first O.S map of 1853.
