More about this scene


Caption for Bainbridge, 1896: Bainbridge was once an important junction, for here the roads to and from Lancaster, Swaledale and Westmorland met. In Roman times a fort stood on nearby Brough Hill, and a garrison was maintained here from about AD 80 to around the end of the 4th century. The Bain is just 6 miles in length and reputed to be the shortest river in England.

Memories of Bainbridge


My grandfather, Guy Metcalfe, played in Bainbridge Brass Band; nearly half the band were Metcalfes, all related. One of my ancestors (on my mother's side) was the famous hornblower on the village green.
