Devils Bridge is actually a fairly common title for many bridges throughout Europe, originating from a medieval folktale that differs from bridge to bridge. In particular, the Devils Bridge in Kirkby Lonsdale stems from the story of a woman separated from her fields by the River Lune. She made a pact with the Devil who agreed to build her a bridge, as long as he could take the soul of the first living thing to walk across. She tricked the Devil by sending her dog across first, and he had to be content with the animal’s soul, as she walked across unharmed.

Discover the history and beautiful landscape surrounding the River Lune by making a trip to the Devils Bridge, and enjoying a number of pleasant walks sprouting off from this local landmark.
