Couldn’t help adding this image to this weeks Bridge challenge from DP.
Cruising along one of England’s many canals, they were once the Motorways (or artery)of the country vital for commercial traffic….. now a haunt of those in search of a more leisurely way of life.
The canals are spanned by a great many bridges but not all are architecturally as elegant as the ‘iron bridges’ with there low sweeping arches in contrasting black and white and boldly carrying the makers name (in this case Horseley Iron works) to my mind as in important part of our built Heritage as any Cathedral, Mansion or Castle.
You can see all the other suggestion folk have contributed to the challenge on this link
