Has anyone ever seen a small traditional Lakeland bridge which exactly matches the illustration of Titty and Roger going under the native road (carrying their shoes and socks) in the early chapters of Swallowdale?

I wanted to recreate the illustration in a photograph next time I am visiting Cumbria. I saw a few suitably-sized bridges on my last visit, but they were either on private land, or had significant features that would ruin the photo.

Just a bit of fun!
