42 ton truck on a medieval bridge. aerial photograph of Darley Bridge Derbyshire England UK being crossed by a 42 ton articulated lorry. The first recorded mention of this bridge was in 1504. It was originally constructed with a narrow width for pack horses. Since then the bridge has been partial rebuilt and widened, however the centre arch on one side remains the original medieval structure and is Grade II listed. No doubt the original builders couldn't begin to imagine how their work would be used more than 500 years later.
