Long Description:
This little wooded area downstream of the bridge is managed by Lake District National Park Authority. The bridge spans a natural rock narrowing on the river Esk, with a flood level on one parapet of 1890. Bridge itself is made from local stone with parapets of imported stone, suggesting they have been added later. The road carried leads to a free car park. Many walks involve Trough House Bridge on their route.
