Eamont-Bridge, with Yanwith
EAMONT-BRIDGE, with Yanwith, a township, in the parish of Barton, West ward and union, county of Westmorland, 1¼ mile (S. S. E.) from Penrith; containing 316 inhabitants. In the vicinity, the Eamont is passed by a viaduct on the line of the Lancaster and Carlisle railway: the viaduct has five arches of fifty feet span each, and seventy feet high, and commands a view of rich rural scenery on the river, the trees clustering to the very brink of its dark and gloomy bosom. On the southern bank of the Eamont is an intrenched amphitheatre, called King Arthur's Round Table, in ancient times used as a tilting-ground; and near it is another relic of antiquity, named Mayburgh, which is supposed to have been the Gymnasium, where the wrestlers, racers, and others of the humbler class performed their exercises. The union workhouse is in the township, and here is a school endowed with £100 per annum.
