Lesbury Bridge was built in the 15th century. It crossed the river Aln on the main route from Lesbury to Warkworth. The bridge was sometimes known as Lesbury Mill Bridge, because it stood next to Lesbury Mill, a medieval mill which no longer exists. The bridge is a Scheduled Monument and Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
