The Dawn of the Blackwatch
The Greenbridge has spanned the “The Scratch” as long as history remembers.It is approximately 120’ long and 35’ wide and made from the trunk of an enormous petrified tree that has been split lengthwise down the middle. The trunk looks as if it is made of stone. A small stream, called The Godspring, flows down a moss-covered channel carved out of the middle of the tree. Because of the magic of the Godspring, ivy grows from the spring outwards along the dead wood of the trunk and over the sides to hang from the bridge. There are no railings on the Greenbridge so most people cross very close to the center. The Pilgrims of the Tide observe the tradition of crossing the Greenbridge by walking barefoot directly down the Godspring to it’s source in the center of “The Proper”. Every evening at dusk the Knight of The Greenbridge takes his post in the middle of the bridge where he remains until dawn.
