IT almost looks like an old painting ... but this captures one of the most well-known landmarks on the moors above Marsden.

This image of the old packhorse bridge at Eastergate – also known as Close Gate Bridge – was taken by Gary Stevenson from Honley.

The bridge crosses the River Colne near its source in the Marsden Moor National Trust Estate and is on the route of the Huddersfield to Rochdale packhorse trail.

According to Marsden History Group: “The Packhorse road (more of a track) went from Clough Lea to Hey Green and Easter Gate.

“Then it went over Clowes Moor to Rochdale. There are packhorse bridges at Clough Lea and Close Gate Bridge from where it went up Willykay Clough to Denshaw and Ogden.

“Part of the packhorse road – called Rapes or Reeps Highway – ran from Marsden to the Saddleworth boundary where is became the Buck Road.’’

If you’re going to do the walk over the moors make sure you’re properly kitted out.
