Ford at Westerdale, Hunter's Stee
Ford at Westerdale, Hunter's Stee
This irish bridge ford on the River Esk is interesting in a number of ways. Firstly in its proximity to the packhorse bridge which can be seen in the background. This is known as Hunter's Stee or Sty and carries the emblem from the nearby Westerdale Hall. The more observant viewer will in addition to the cyclists have noticed the fish on the road. The sea trout in their quest to spawn upstream attempt to leap the road and eventually pass through the culverts. I have tried to capture this in the attached video:

An irish bridge is a multi-culverted ford. At normal water levels the water-course passes through the culverts and under the road but at times of high water levels the watercourse passes over the road creating a true ford.
