Caption: Clapper bridge over the River Dart in Dartmoor, South Devon, UK. A clapper bridge is an ancient stone bridge formed by laying large flat stones supported by stone piers to create a crossing over a river or stream. The name derives from the Anglo-Saxon word cleaca, meaning 'bridging the stepping stones'. Photographed in summer.
