View of a ruined chapel at Catterick Bridge, North Riding in Yorkshire. The bridge was built in 1422-5 but was later re-surfaced and widened. The topographical artist Captain Francis Grose wrote in the 18th century, "Upon the south-end of this bridge was formerly a Chapel or Oratory, where, as tradition tells us, Mass was said every day at eleven o'clock for the benefit of Travellers. By whom or at what time it was founded is not said or known. At present it is used as a coal magazine for the adjacent Inn".
