This small footbridge is at the bottom of the hill on the road from Bishop Norton to Atterby.

It is a single span bridge, usually described as a clapper bridge, over Atterby Beck and gives access to the fields to Atterby.

The huge stone slab is suitable for use by single line of walkers.

It is considered to be ancient and is listed by English Heritage.

The Primitive Methodist Chapel, Main Street, Bishop Norton, built in 1875, became disused in the 1980s before closing officially in 1993 .

It is believed there was an earlier chapel on the same site, probably from the early to mid 19th century.

The iron-work railings have survived along with the foundation stones and date stone.

Norton Place was built for the MP, John Harrison, by John Carr of York in 1776.

The porch on this, the west side, was probably built by Vulliamy in 1836.

The Old School, Main Street, Bishop Norton, was built in 1872.

It has an unusual patterned slate roof and tile decoration over one window.

Like many schools at this time the builders paid much attention to details. The bellcote remains intact.

The National School was built here, by subscription, in 1872. It could hold 100 children. It was later known as Bishop Norton and Atterby National School.

The closure of the school was precipitated in June 1945 when it proved to be impossible to recruit sufficient teachers.
