Talking What is it with bikes & bridge photos??

I spent the better part of an hour enjoying these...so, being a new inmate here at the asylum, I thought I should enter a couple of mine:

Two-part image...





The only bit of pavement for 30-odd miles - bridge over San Pedro River, along Redington Rd, Pima Co., AZ [note: Wings do NOT make good trail bikes...even when the road is decently-graded!]


Photo used for a Tag game played on another forum...bridge is rarely used, and is over 80 years old.

The little dipper

Berriow Bridge over the Lynher, mentioned by Norden (no, not Denis Norden) in 1584, repaired in 1640.

Bridge clubhouse



Yeolmbridge on the River Attery not only has ribbed arches, great refuges and fine cutwaters but also its own clubhouse. Neat.

Higher Newbridge - peek-a-boo

Then, dear of him, Henderson tells us the new bridge story,

“When John Leland came to Cornwall from Holsworthy in 1539, to make his survey, he wrote: ‘Or ever I cam to Lanstoun by a mile I passed over a bridge of stone having three arches and a smaul caullid New Bridge . . .’ This New Bridge was of the making of the Abbates of Tavestock ‘and mainteinyd by them for Tavestoke Abbey had fair possessions there aboute’ [i.e. Werrington Park].


There are two two ‘New Bridges’ over the Tamar and this is usually called the Higher by way of distinction.

(Lower) Newbridge, for the avoidance of doubt

And here is the lower Newbridge over the Tamar at Gunnislake
