Birks Bridge over the River Winster
Birks Bridge is a stone footbridge over the River Winster in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria, located about 1 mile south-west of Winster and 2 miles west of Crosthwaite. It is a "Clapper" bridge (an ancient type of bridge formed by large flat slabs of stone, supported on stone piers), thought to date from the 17th century, with the later addition of an iron handrail. The bridge is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England. There is a ford over the river by the bridge.
