bridle-sty bridge

1) A bridge on a bridle-way.

Some bridges in bridle-ways were very simple structures: 1688 a small plancke bridge for one horse onely over Crimple ... which said bridlestie-bridge was mentained by the townes of Kirk Deighton and Ribston. In a petition by the two townships it was referred to as the said bridlestie-bridge or Heble-bridge . It was later replaced by a much bigger stone bridge, suitable for carts and carriages. David Hey quoted similar evidence for a plank bridge in Sheffield, called Little Sheffield Bridge in 1715.
