High Borrow Bridge  Westmorland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described High Borrow Bridge like this:

BORROW-BRIDGE (High and Low), two localities on the Borrow river in Westmoreland; the former on the road from Shap to Kendal, the latter on that from Orton to Kirkby-Lonsdale. Both have inns; and Low BorrowBridge has also a village, amid romantic scenery, adjacent to a deep cutting on the Lancaster and Carlisle railway, and is a noted resort of anglers for trout-fishing.
