    Mulholland Hwy bridge over Lake Enchanto/Malibu Creek, which was melted in the Malibu Fire of '18. Some of this road is still closed, like the Snake near the Rock Store.

    I am currently touring in South Carolina, and I have come across 3 others. They seem to just strip them and leave the framework up.

    Here’s the clapper bridge at Postbridge on Dartmoor, England

    Behind the clapper bridge, which is about 700 years old, you can see the new bridge, which is a few hundred years younger.

    How wide is the Clapper bridge? I would guess the "new" bridge was built to get a cart over it.

    I guess it’s about four feet wide, so maybe a pony and cart width. The new bridge is a two lane thing, though British country lanes can be pretty narrow.

    The water below is pretty red so I’d guess so.
    I grew up in the different county of Hampshire where our little river was called the Rother. This is a Viking name for red from back when they conquered and settled here, maybe a thousand years ago.
