9. Glaisdale Village and Moorland Environs

9a. Beggar's Bridge

The packhorse 'Beggar's Bridge' at Glaisdale, medieval in origin (probably 14th C) and rebuilt in the early 17th Century about 1620 by Alderman Thomas Ferris/Firris/Ferries of Hull.


The 'Beggars Bridge' seen from underneath the railway bridge near Glaisdale station on the Middlesbrough-Whitby line. The modern road bridge is in the background.

9b. The station and the old coal staithes


Location 12a: Glaisdale station where the tracks double up to  allow trains to pass, since most of the Middlesbrough-Whitby line is a single track railway.

Glaisdale Station on the Esk valley Line.


The old coal staithes between the station and the bridges.

9c. Glaisdale Moor

Some beautiful walks on Glaisdale Moor and Mrs Stainthorpe nee Clorcina Rawdon-Smith (1914-1967) wished to be remembered here.



One of many boundary stones found on the moors - this one is at High Moor at the head of Glaisdale.

9d A fine house and 'never-used' railway bridge

Low Brock Rigg - Rake Farm dated 1749 above the doorway.


Nearby is where it was intended that a mineral railway would have branched of from the Esk Valley Line towards Paddy Waddle's railway?
