Old Foot Bridge near Lickhurst Farm.
Old Foot Bridge near Lickhurst Farm.
The main span of this bridge is constructed from a single piece of stone. Quite why someone would take the trouble to cut such a huge piece of rock instead of using wood is beyond me. Clearly a lot of work went into it as I had to look close to check it wasn't made from concrete. It can't have been needed for its weight bearing qualities as it is only 18inches wide.
The date 1816 is carved into the side of the span. Unfortunately my attempt at a close up view of the date left a lot to be desired.
