Bridges[edit]

Ruleholme has two bridges both crossing the River Irthing. Ruleholme Bridge is a bridge on a minor road which is the original bridge and was by-passed. The route is now blocked off on one side of the Bridge.[2] Ruleholme New Bridge is a bridge carrying the A689 road traffic, built to by-pass the longer, older route of Ruleholme Bridge.
