Some people used to wrongly believe that this is called Doctors Lane because medical men from Northallerton would only come as far as this lane to find out what was happening in the village at the time of the cholera outbreak in the 1830's.

The meaning of the name Enterpen is not known; it may refer to the pinfold (pound) where stray animals were kept until their owners paid to get them back. Before the railway there were stables in Enterpen for up to 50 pack mules, who carried linen cloth made in the village mill to market.

400 years ago the original bridge across the river stood a little to the east and was made of wood. This stone bridge was built in 1755 at a cost of £150. It was a narrow bridge and in 1972 was widened to the full width of the road. Photo: Hutton Rudby and District Local History Society (July 1923).
