The picturesque hump-backed bridge at Ivelet crosses the River Swale
approximately a mile and half west of Gunnerside.
On the north side of the bridge, set into the verge, is a coffin
stone where pall bearers rested with the coffin on their journey
from Muker down to the church at Grinton.
Geoffrey White mentions in Walks
in Swaledale that the bridge is also 'the reputed haunt of a
headless dog whose appearance is locally regarded as an ill omen'.
