As the next image shows, this isn't a bridge carrying a road over a depression but really is a tunnel, extending for tens of metres.
I understand it was constructed in the early 19th Century to allow Thwaite Lane, the ancient Clapham-Austwick track, to 'invisibly' cross the grounds of Ingleborough Hall.
The blocked tunnel to the right of this image once linked the village to the Hall's kitchens, again with extravagent discretion.
