Utterby, Packhorse Bridge
C14 bridge used by packhorses which were the main form of overland transport in the middle ages.
Particularly important for transport of wool to the coast and salt inland.
May have been constructed by the nearby Gilbertine Priory at North Ormsby. They held the living of Saint Andrew's Church, Utterby and derived much profit from the wool trade.
