Donkey Bridge 8th March 2014

Donkey Bridge is a wooden crossing over Maple Dean Clough. The bridge forms part of a path connecting Copley Village with Pickwood Scar, a area of the township of Norland.  The crossing was once made of stone and the supports up from the water are still the original stone constructs, although the actual bridge is now made of wood. 

Maple Dean Clough, the stream that flows underneath the bridge has it's source at Norland Moor approx. 3/4 of a mile to the south of the bridge. It flows down the hillside through North Dean Woods, joined by Norland Stream along it's length before discharging in to the River Calder near Copley Bridge.
