Fairy Call Bridge plaque
Fairy Call Bridge plaque
It states the bridge was built in 1891 and widened (on the low side) in 1942.
Presumably before this there was a ford crossing.
The beck is normally quite shallow but rather deeply incised.
Online information found mentions construction during 1890 for the sum of 42, through efforts of Mr Harrison Weighell.
The 'Fairy Call' name is explained by local legend as the beck and crossing being the haunt of mischievous fairies which would play tricks on passing travelers, such as extinguishing carriage lanterns.
