I wandered lonely as a cloud driving first up and then down t'hills, where I came across a lovely bridge and this here carpet of daffodills.
Beautiful picture of a lovely old (I imagine) bridge in the springtime. Sort of scene one thinks of when in exile in dry and dusty far away places! So thank you, Sam!
Like, Best wishes, Andy
Hi Andy , the following in Wilkepedia confirms your "old"" suspicion.
An ancient stone arch over the River Esk near the village. By the road towards Kildale, but the modern road crosses the Esk by a ford nearby. This route would have been well travelled in the past, as the way to Baysdale Abbey and Gisborough Priory. The bridge was restored by the Duncombe family in the late 19th century (A date stone on the downstream side states 1874), but the underside of the arch retains interesting Medieval ribbed stonework. It is thought the Knights Templar may have been involved in the construction; it is certainly of that period.
Many thanks !
Good on the Duncombes, I say!
Many thanks for taking the trouble to find out and share, Sam. Much appreciated.
Somehow i knew you'd be back here,its fave scene of mine an'all mate,might be worth another visit when the bud are starting to open. Its a cracking shot Sam, nice splash of colour from the daffs too;-)
If I'm out that way I generally make a point of dropping by just to see what the light is like on the scene Neil, I was thrilled to see the daffs that looked to be trampled when I saw it last had actually stood back up and flowered. I only just got this taken as the sun set over the hill so all in all luck was definately on my side for this shot.
Cheers mate !
