Kilgram bridge spans the river Ure in lower Wensleydale between Middleham and Masham where the river slows and begins its meander through the Plain of York towards the sea. Below the bridge are some deep pools where wild Brown Trout lie and can ocasionally be enticed to take a well cast fly.

Masham is home to TWO of Yorkshire’s famous breweries – Theakston’s and Black Sheep Brewery. Both have visitor centres where a fine afternoon can be spent sampling ales from the brewery tap.

Middleham, further up Wensleydale is famous for its racing stables with several top trainers based in the area. Visitors can watch the horses being trained on the gallops and even take a tour of the stables. Standing high above the rivers Cover & Ure the magnificent castle of Middleham, once the childood home of Richard 3rd has the largest castle keep in the North of England and a royal heritage that once earned it the title of the ‘Windsor of the North’.

The site of Kilgram Bridge has been used for thousands of years to cross the River Ure. This Norman bridge prossibly dates from 1145AD (certainly standing by 1301 AD) and was built by the monks from nearby Cistercian Jervaulx Abbey. It was built upon the remains of an early Roman paved ford, the well preserved remains of which were used as the bridge’s foundations and can still be seen under the bridge today.
