Glaisdale
Glaisdale

Glaisdale is a village and civil parish in the English county of North Yorkshire. It lies at grid reference NZ775054 on the River Esk, between the villages of Lealholm and Egton Bridge, eight miles west of Whitby, and is served by Glaisdale railway station on the Esk Valley Line. The village lies on the national hiking trail the Esk Valley Walk.

[edit] Beggar's Bridge

At the eastern edge of the village lies Beggar's Bridge, built by Thomas Ferris in 1619. Ferris was a poor man who hoped to wed the daughter of a wealthy local squire. In order to win her hand, he planned to set sail from Whitby to make his fortune. On the night that he left, the Esk was swollen with rainfall and he was unable to make a last visit to his intended. He eventually returned from his travels a rich man and, after marrying the squire's daughter, built Beggar's Bridge so that no other lovers would be separated as they were.
