Thank you Anne and Eduardo

This bridge has a great place in English history...

The Battle of Powick Bridge, fought on 23 September 1642, was the first major cavalry engagement of the English Civil War and it was a victory for the Royalists who overthrew the Parliamentary cavalry...

By coincidence the English Civil Wars ended with another clash at Powick Bridge almost exactly 9 years later at the Battle of Worcester on the 3rd September 1651. The Royalists broke the bridge, but Major-General Richard Deane forced his way over the River Teme and pursued them into Worcester.

All the best Peter

Hi Peter Now thats a bridge of interest, I have been to Powick and that side of Worcester many times and never noticed that bridge . Eyes wide open that are shut, I must revisit with the trusty camera there are many grand old trees in the area.(Like5) Regards Bob

Best wishes Peter
