Ramps Holme Bridge, Muker, Coast to Coast

Ramps Holme is an area of the Swale riverbank on the opposite side to Muker where the Swale is met by the Straw Beck on a large sweeping arc of the river below Ivelet Side. It is most notably known for the Ramps Holme footbridge that spans the River Swale on a footpath that leads north from Muker to join the lower route of the Coast to Coast path in Ivelet Wood near to Ramps Holme Farm.

The bridge is of an interesting design, having stone supports and steps on each of its flanks, and a central, conical, stone support. The bridge itself is quite narrow with wooden railing sides. It is raised sufficiently high over the river so as to allow for a large increase to the Swale's depth during inclement weather, with strong, sturdy supports that are not likely to be damaged by turbulent water.

The inner arc of the riverbank has a stone wall and a raised stone/concrete footpath, with protection to walkers by metal railings.
