Description:
Girsby is a village and civil parish in the district of Hambleton in North Yorkshire, England. The village lies on high ground on the eastern bank of the River Tees.

The settlement has fallen into disrepair, many of the remaining buildings are derelict, there are barely enough houses to constitute a hamlet.

The small and secluded 'Girsby All Saints Church' overlooks the meandering Tees from its elevated position. The views from this vantage point are most enjoyable at sunset.

A private farmers track leads down to a rarely used bridge over the Tees. A public bridle path crosses the bridge linking Girsby with the nearby village of Neasham on the opposite bank of the river. A plaque on the bridge is inscribed;

Bridle Bridge,

Erected by Theophania Blackett 1870,

Thomas Dyke Esq Civil Engineer.

This engineer from Newcastle owned lots of land in this area, he erected the church at Girsby after the ruins of Sockburn church where no longer visitable, the church was built for the equivalent price today of £14.67

The name bridle may refer to the historic right of way called bridleway.
