Description

Downstream View of Malham Beck with the Old Clapper Bridge

As Malham Beck runs out of Malham Cove and on towards Malham village, it passes under this ancient stone Clapper Bridge. This type of bridge was generally build by farmers, to enable transferring sheep across a stream and into new pastures. The name is based on the sound of the sheep's feet as they run across. As for the Beck, shortly after it passes through Malham village, it runs into the nascent River Aire.
