Thorncliffe Footbridge
Thorncliffe Footbridge
The stone slab or clapper footbridge is the oldest type encountered in the UK. It is also the most durable, requiring very little maintenance. The weak points are usually the bankseats, but here the slab rests firmly on a small masonry training wall, which also supports the hillside.
The footbridge and the beck are shown on the 1:25,000 OS maps but not on the 1:50,000 Series
