God's Bridge is actually a synonym for a natural bridge, a bridge created by god instead of man. In this case it not exactly a natural bridge. The Chapel Beck is the river which flows through Weathercote Cave. It appears in a spring named Jingle Pot just outside Chapel-le-Dale. From here it flows to God's Bridge where it disappears underground, to reappear after 40 m on the other side of the bridge as River Doe.

This site is definitely not a simple natural bridge, the opening where you can see the other side definitely does not exist. So there are actually different opinions, if this is a natural bridge. It would be probably better classified as a river cave with a swallow hole on one side and a resurgence at the other.
