Bridge to Derbyshire


Last week I showed you the border post which was actually one of the supports for the railway viaduct over the river Etherow.

This is the road bridge. It is so narrow that a set of traffic lights regulates the passage over it.

Behind us is the steeply descending Lower Market Street, Broadbottom.

Across the river, the road turns sharp left under Besthill Quarry, before climbing the hill to Charlesworth.

Lovely, lovely shot, Gerald. I would just love to walk that area.

I just noticed you have a blog for your Baltic cruise. I'll have to check it out If our dollar ever gets back to a good level, we'd like to take a Baltic cruise.

BTW. . .It wasn't a zippered purse!

These old bridges are lovely and worth the wait to cross over.

We have one like that with a set of traffic lights. It's amazing to see a large truck navigating such a bridge.
