Very good exploration of the bridge and mill, Ryan. I particularly like this one with its combination of diagonals and the solid verticals of the mill. Marilyn

Thanks Marilyn. It's a very interesting truss design, and the structure is full of wonderful geometry and patterns.

Thanks John. This bridge has been beautifully restored following the authentic design, and it's in very good shape with hardly any graffiti or carvings. I wanted to have shots to show the detail from every direction. Ryan

This is also a very good picture taken from this angle and showing the underside of the bridge in detail. It looks very solid. Great shot, Ryan! Cheers, Anne

Thank you, Anne! The bridge footings were back from the river banks, so there was a nice place to stand. It was nice that every part of the structure was accessible and free to be examined up close. No ropes or fences to hold you back from the edge.

Cheers, Ryan
