Ford at Longtown
Ford at Longtown
This irish bridge ford is found on the Olchon Brook at Longtown.
Irish bridge :: SK8039

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.
In common with french windows and english muffins irish bridge is not usually capitalised and that is the format I have used throughout.
