The Duck Bridge across the River Esk at Danby, North Yorkshire.
This bridge was built in 1345 and is a very fine example of a bow bridge. Danby Castle can be seen through the arch of the bridge - the bridge was originally called Danby Castle Bridge, the name was changed after George Duck restored it in the 18th century.
The crest is said to be that of the Neville family, one of whom, Lord Latimer was Lord of the Manor at the time it was built. One of the later Lords Latimer was the first husband of Catherine Parr, who was to become the 6th wife of Henry VIII.
