DP Weekly Photo Challenge – Structure

Shadows-on-the-Wall

Shadows on the Wall…..

Built I guess in the 1700’s this is a tribute to the bricklayers craft that it is still very much intact.  Wooden beam over the lower doorway, uneven steps whilst flaking paintwork on the upper door and shutters add to the detail of the structure…even the shadows from a late evening sun add another dimension.

Just my take on this weeks DP Photo Challenge – Structure….I hope you like

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Corner

Lea Rhododendron Gardens

A Grand Entrance is Just around the Corner

Twists and turns create a sweeping corner to reach a grand entrance.

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Bridge (2)

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.

Bridge

A Bridge over the River Wye, Derbyshire

Just like the bridge below it is just wide enough for a horse to cross.  The one above is rather smart, as it should be, being one of the entrances to large Country Hall.

The one below is over the River Bradford, just a few miles away and typical of many “Packhorse or Clapper” bridges.  Constructed of simple slabs of stone on stubby plinths.  These bridges were constructed on purely practical need, this one forms part of a Lead miners track.

Both beautiful in there own right
