Geo-Trips :: By the Black Water - Silver Bridge to Old Garve

Garve

A walk from Silver Bridge, Sat, 12 Nov 2016 by Julian Paren

This is a short and popular walk beside the Black Water, traversing a section between two old bridges allowing a circular walk using both banks of the river. The Black Water has some fine waterfalls in this stretch of the river while it crosses some interesting geology. A walk for any season, but probably at its best with ice beside the river or in the autumn.

There is much to see and explore, especially the architecture of the bridges. Allow a minimum of 1 hour 30 to enjoy the 2.5 mile circuit.
