AUSTWICK 13A - Clapper bridge, Austwick Beck
Clapper Bridge over Austwick Beck in Crummack Dale in the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire.
Believed to be 15th century, this ancient limestone and Silurian slate bridge links two ancient green lanes (old drove roads used for herding animals). There is an adjacent ford where animals and carts could cross.
