Captain Clarke's Bridge


Today's CDPB theme is "Bridges".

We don't have any big or spectacular bridges in Hyde. Those that have appeared here previously include the railway viaduct at Godley; the railway bridge on Great Norbury Street complete with a pigeon and with a yellow flower; footbridges over the M67 and over the canal at Raglan Street; the bridge taking the disused railway line over Brookfold Lane, looking up and looking down.

Perhaps the most unusual ones are the roving bridges over the Peak Forest Canal. One is on Manchester Road; the other is known as Captain Clarke's Bridge.

Here is another picture of the latter showing the path as it curves back round to the towpath on the opposite bank.

Over 120 CDPB blogs registered to run with this theme. Below are permalinks to their bridge posts including some to unregistered blogs who also posted on the theme. One blog registered to run the theme posted off-topic. Five registered blogs failed to post before 10pm GMT Dec 2nd. One blog failed to post anything on the 1st but has posted [not a bridge] on the 2nd.

I have the same bridge on today Gerald taken by Big Peter.. it is in B&W.
Didn't realise it was a specail 'Bridge' posting day.

Steffe said...

It look like a beautiful old stone bridge.

dot said...

What is ordinary to some is unusual and interesting to others. We don't see bridges like these where I live so I'm enjoying the pictures.

isabella said...

Lovely old bridge! Are those stone stops meant for horses?

julia said...

Extra special stone work! Must be way past your bedtime yet you are working for us on CDP, all the best!

marley said...

Love this twisty turny bridge!

Ann (MobayDP) said...

I'm with dot on this one :) I think this picture is such an interesting one. The angle on this shot is unusual and brilliant.
I like old wom tigley's shot as well!

Denton said...

Your perspective on this photo is especially good. You managed to show the bridge and the path.

Keropok Man said...

this curvy stone bridge is nice!


Happy Theme Day!

Kuanyin said...

Great photo! I like the spiraling effect! Happy Theme Day!

Fénix (Bostonscapes DP) said...

Lovely choice for the theme. BTW, would you kindly explain what the reasoning behind this permalink thing you do is?

Kate said...

I remember this photo from a previous posting and love it still. Good choice!

Clueless in boston said...

Great bridge. It's the first stone bridge I've seen on this tour.

Isadora said...

Oh, my! This is not only a bridge, but a clever work of art. I had to stare at it for a while enjoying its finesse.

Suz said...

What an amazing, amazing bridge. Makes me want to buy my ticket right now!

Jilly said...

This is so beautiful. Great shot, Gerald. Love this bridge.

~tanty~ said...

A very cute photo. I do like it.
Happy theme day!

Felicia said...

Wow, I had to look at this one very carefully to see the path. It is gorgeous!

Lara said...

this is so nice!

Ham said...

Ahoy me hearties! I like the way there is no water involved in the captain's bridge. Nice shot

Outhouse Capital of Canada said...

I must go and visit that bridge when I am in England next may,
because I collect bridges and will add it to my collection.
Oh, I will leave the bridge there and just take a photograph or two, A bridge of that size may be more than my baggage allowance with Zoom Airlines

oldmanlincoln said...

That is really neat and bends my eyes as they try to figure out what kind of structure this is. Nice post.

lv2scpbk said...

Nice capture of the spiral.

Old Wom Tigley said...

This bridge as many memories for me Gerald, I have used it many many times. I would walk this way to school in my teens, I have walked it hand in hand when courting, I have fished from and by it. I have even jumped the canal there where it is narrow. One of the many great little bridges of this area.

maria elisa said...

these are my favourite bridges

Z said...

'Roving' bridges. That's a new one for me.

Thanks for doing the permalinks again - much appreciated as always! I didn't get to register with the group this time, but I linked to this page of yours on my post of the day (Villigen bridge).

Gwen said...

Very scenic spiral bridge.

Me said...

Nice shot, I like the way you framed it.

Andrea said...

I think this is the best bridge I have seen. Great shot....beautiful, just beautiful.

moworld said...

Great looking bridge, a really interesting design.

Dick said...

But it is a very SPECIAL bridge.

slinger said...

Natural stone arch support, very impressive engineering and a great capture for the theme.

sam said...

well your bridges may not be big but they certainly are beautiful, this old curving structure is just stunning! BTW you asked in one of your comments today to someone (can't remember where i saw it) if other people are getting funny pop-ups asking if you want to open or save when you click on a photo, I have also been getting them!

Kim said...

Oh Gerald, a roving bridge. . .that is such a great name for this. It's absolutely charming and I wish I could explore it right now. Gives such a flavor of Hyde for us. Kudos!

Chris said...

Oh, Gerald! I just love this bridge and the photo. Maybe it should be in your Top Ten!!

Jim said...

I think this is a very cool old bridge. Thanks for the links, I had no idea what a roving bridge was, I had to read up on it. Very neat.

Joy said...

That's a beautiful bridge. Do you use it often?

Curly said...

It's difficult to spot a bridghe that makes a difference today Gerald, but I certainly like this one!

Wendy said...

This is a lovely bridge with it's curved design, and the lush foilage around it. Thank you for the work you are doing on the Bridge links.

Kerry-Anne said...

What a beautifully romantic little bridge!

Marie said...

This is a very beautiful old bridge. So original. I like it a lot.

Gail's Man said...

Good use of perspective. A long and winding road.

Sally said...

I think we're all becoming bridge enginering experts today. This is pretty special!

Thanks for visiting me in hospital! I feel better already :-)

I'm not sure what they might think about cameras here....if they knew!!! Well, it's fairly normal in the maternity and paedeatric wards any way. I think as long as you ask, people don't mind. (or do as I did and wait til everyone's gone)

Karlis Beinerts said...

That is a very strange looking bridge! You have made it look very outstanding!
P.S. Check this out...You know what I mean :) Is it better now?
Thanks for advise!

Michelle said...

I think this is a pretty spectacular bridge, and a pretty spectacular photo. :)

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

WOW! That's one heck of a bridge and a cool shot too! I like it a lot.

You used to be able to give blogger direct feedback but Hyde, do you know how to do that now? I'd like to give them a piece of my mind!

Helen said...

Hi from Albuquerque Daily Photo! I think this is a beautiful old stone bridge! The perspective makes me dizzy!

Mo said...

If I had to vote for a favorite this would be it!

Susan said...

It may to be huge but it is certainly magnificent. Very nice.

Denton said...

You are my hero on theme day.

Neva said...

I like this one.

J.A. said...

Wow, a snail bridge!
Thaks for your visit to Sesimbra.

Carlos Lorenzo said...

This curvy path is just perfect. And the place you chose to shoot and the framing are excellent. Thxs.

Antonia said...

wonderful fairy-tales atmosphere! I like this photo!

Lynette said...

Thank you for this other view of a spectacular bridge, Gerald. I’ve enjoyed browsing through your recent posts. The Ring and Ride is an interesting service.

Web-OJ said...

Believe me, this bridge IS spectacular!

BrusselsDailyPhotoByGregous said...

nice circular bridge - is it your last post really ?

Hyde DP said...

Thanks to everyone for their lovely comments - no Brussels not my last post, just my last update to this one. I won't be adding any late bridge posts to the list of links above. Yours was the last link.

PaB said...

I like the curve and the cobblestones.

Dusty Lens said...

This is quite the bridge. Quite a wonderful stone structure!

NorthBayPhoto said...

Beautiful photo for theme day.

R&R in The Netherlands said...
