The village of Bridekirk is named after the cruciform shaped church of St. Bridget, which was re-constructed in the late 1860s.
Originally the village consisted of farms, the church and the vicarage. There was Bridekirk House and half a dozen cottages.
On the southern outskirts of the village, across the main A595 road was Wood Hall, which was demolished some time ago, and the outbuildings converted into a house and holiday cottages.
Bridekirk House was also demolished some years ago, and the grounds became a small residential development.
In historical times the main occupation was farming, though today most residents commute to work elsewhere.
Water for the village originally came from a well at the bottom of a field in the middle of the village called Well Close, which is now named Springwell.
