Stone Slab Bridge

A slab of sandstone crosses a small creek.

Here’s a better picture of the bridge we built- whose construction process I documented in the last post. The abutments are shown completed. The base stones are huge, easily 700 pounds a piece. Small drystone walls extend the abutments. These walls retain the yard as it approaches the bridge. They also provide resistance to erosion, should the creek rise. I’m looking forward to seeing it when the greenery grows back.
