A bridge in the woods

An image showing a stone bridge

On a recent walk visitors were shown a stone built bridge deep in the Forest. It was built as one of two separate bridges to carry the mineral railway over the Blackpool Brook and a forest ride. The photo shows the bridge over the ride from below. The railway has long gone but the bridges now carry the popular Family Cycle Trail across the valley.
