Photographer's Note

How were large slabs of stone like this put in place?

A small version of a clapper bridge; an ancient form of bridge found on the moors of several counties of the UK.

Formed by large flat slabs of stone, often granite or schist, supported on stone piers (across rivers) or resting on the banks of streams, as here.

Most were erected in medieval times.

Two more shots in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
