i like local history

so here is some from england with a stone arch bridge

this dates from about 1759 as far as i can find out, its commonly know as "the packhorse bridge" as its on a route that the packhorses used to carry goods over the moors from yorkshire to lancashire, its wide enough for horses and men only

The Clements stone arch bridge was built in 1887 of native limestone. The two-span bridge with a main span of 57.1 feet and a length of 126.9 feet is now open only to pedestrians.

I sit in awe at the mere thought of how in the world did they get this bridge put together with these stones. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks,Mandy.
Thats nothing Mandy...In the UK we haveArch bridges made of Iron that are over hundred years older than the Clements Bridge! :blah:
