Varnupite iztek no netalu esoša Kirbes purva. Kadreiz ta ietecejusi Ligupe, tacu, kad sešdesmitajos gados tika uzbuveta šoseja Klaipeda – Liepaja, tad celtnieki zem cela nepareiza virziena izveidoja caurteci. Ta nu Varnupite, nespejot iztecet caur nepareizi buveto caurteci, tek gar celu un turpat ari pazud.
Varnupites tilts tika uzbuvets 1916. gada pec vacu kungu paveles, ka dala no dzelzcela, kas aizgaja lidz Lietuvas Darbieniem. Tas tika buvets, lai varetu izvest kokus, kas šaja apkaime bija tik daudz, uz Lietuvu un talak uz Vaciju.
Pec Pirma pasaules kara, visi dzelzceli, kas atradas Latvijas teritorija, nonaca jaunizveidotas Latvijas Dzelzcelu Virsvaldes parzina.
Liela dala kara laika buveto dzelzcelu tika piemeroti pasažieru un precu parvadašanai: nostiprinaja uzberumus, parbuveja tiltus, ka ari cela jaunas stacijas ekas un bagažas škunus. Neskatoties uz banišu mazo atrumu lidz 20 km/h, tas turpat vai 60 gadus bija vienigais drošais transporta lidzeklis pasažieru, dažadu lauksaimniecibas produktu un meža materialu nogadašanai uz lielpilsetam gan ziema, gan vasara.

[ENG]
Crowriver (Varnupite) flows out of Kirbe bog. It ends for about a kilometer after the bridge.
The bridge of Crowriver and the rest of railway was built in 1916 in order to transport wood to Lithuania and then to Germany. After the World War I the railway was reconstructed and now able to transport people in route Liepaja - Rucava. After World War II the train was destroyed. Afterwards it was used again as a wood transporter in route Jeci – Barta – Liepaja.
The bridge of Crowriver is one of the rare objects that has lasted.
