Old stone footbridge over stream. Painting by Paul Talbot-Greaves

Bridging Hippins Clough

Watercolour on Saunders Waterford Paper 25 x 25cm

 

This bridge is part of the old causeway routes that crossed the Pennine Hills. Now used as footpaths, Causeways were the main roads of the industrial revolution, set across fields and moors to connect farms, hamlets, villages and towns. Trains of packhorses would have used these routes and bridges such as this one have hollowed out grooves where the horses hooves have worn away the stone over hundreds of years.
