For some reason I like old stone bridges very much. You have found a very pretty one Rosa and the photo deserves a golden star. Well done. Cheers, Ildikó

Nice shot like of a very unusual bridge. I suppose the low arches at river-level increase the risk of a build-up of water when the river is in spate, and the arches in the parapet would help relieve the pressure. But it's a curious design solution. Can't recall having seen anything else quite like it.

That's exactly right Mark. It is a low lying area. I don't recall seeing another like this. The other side of it has large breakwater pillars...I think that is what they are called! Thanks for your visit and likes.

Best wishes, Rosa.

I expect it holds many secrets of the past!

Hello Rosa Super stone built bridge, may I welcome you and some of your interesting and informative photographs to the small Historical Interest group. Regards Bob

♦Rosa♦ on May 10, 2013


Hello Bob, I like the smaller groups and this one really appeals to me. I shall be going back to the village where this bridge is to take some pic's of the ancient weir that was being repaired on this visit. My daughter says it's spectacular! Regards, Rosa.
