A View from Little Emily's Bridge, Upper Wharfedale

Amidst the group of cottages close by Linton Falls is a 14th century, packhorse bridge, 'Little Emily's Bridge', a few minutes walk from the church of Saint Michael and All Saints.  Legend has it that the bridge is named after a member of the Norton family, who hid nearby at the time of the English Civil War. There is also the possibility that the name was the invention of novelist Halliwell Sutcliffe.

Original painting sold, prints available.
