You might want to listen to the words Peter O:-)

I know the words, Rapples, I just think that a better artistic experience might have been had if the bridge chosen had been more photogenic, especially as it's immaterial which bridge you choose as long as it has the right number of syllables - even if it's a true story.  An allegory would work just as well.  I had in my mind one of those long, long rattle-y things across the wide, wide Mississippi.  Now the illusion is shattered and I may never be the same again.

Action shot - taken from my boat!

The clearance between water level and underside of bridge deck had to be raised from the original design.  The architects/designers hadn't provided enough headroom for us rowers!

I've just had a dig around, and I'm rather disappointed by the poor standard of my bridgepr0n collection.

Severn Road Bridge (looking south) - 24 hours before Bristol's Wettest Bike Ride
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/BWBR2011/IMG_20110611_152106.sized.jpg)

Lymm - from the silly bit of Andygates's LEJOG
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/andygates-lejog/PICT0328.sized.jpg)

Slippery Stones (upper Derwent) - featuring Meegat and gerwinium of this parish, and the now legendary Postman Piers.  Actually quite a good bridge if seen from a better angle.
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/upper_derwent/IMG_1924.sized.jpg)

M25 at Rammey Marsh Lock (from the days when riding more than 40km was a lot, and I wanted proof that I'd made it all the way to the edge of civilisation).
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/2007-08-28/IMG_0817.sized.jpg)

A rare example of a Sustrans route feature designed with recumbents in mind on NCN1 at Coppermill Lane
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/2007-08-28/IMG_0834.sized.jpg)



I also have bridges *with* CrinklyLion:
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/mild_touring_june2011/PICT0335.sized.jpg)

...and a couple of photos taken *from* bridges:

Avoncliff - lovely light, shame about the exposure
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/YACFcamping09/IMG_1894.sized.jpg)

City Airport from Woolwich Manor Way.  This is a fun one, as if you hang around for a while a plane will give you a free haircut.
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/2007-08-26/IMG_0792.sized.jpg)


I'll try harder in future.  I expect the first step will be replacing that b0rked camera.  The second step will be remembering to actually take photos with the replacement.  The third step will be getting a trice and a WARTY franchise and planning a barakta/cub friendly trip to Ironbridge.

Dammit!  I was in Canterbury at the weekend and forgot to take a photo of a bus squeezing through the Westgate (http://www.flickr.com/photos/wisbey/5458927769/).  Actually, if I'd remembered I'd only have been thwarted by the lack of a camera.  Phone camera lacking the precision timing required to do that shot justice.  Unless it's a coach load of french tourists, in which case you could do a reasonable oil painting in the time it usually takes them to get it out.

Naw, I think the bridge is perfect.

Bleak, impersonal, utterly lacking in soul. Perfectly reflects the despair of suicide.

According to your profile location I think I used to cycle near to your place on my way to Openshaw tech, from Stockport.

Did they ever nuke Openshaw tech from orbit?  (it's the only way to be sure)

I remember it in its original wooden form prior to it being rebuilt in concrete in the 1960s.

It now forms part of the NCN and of a circular walk from Preston City Centre along disused railways. It's on the walking route from my house to the city centre.

This is the one that stayed up for the last 120 years.. You can still see the stumps of the original next to the pillars.

Ooh me and my cousin could probably bag some of the ones on York bypass then. We used to ride on the bypass on a weekend or a night as kids before it was opened.
Same! I used to ride the part between the Wigginton and Haxby roads, and over to the Strensall road. It was great to cycle on before they let the cars on.

You get double points for going under bridges when there's a train going over it.  Or over bridges while a train goes under it.  And triple points for freight trains.  And gadzillions for steam trains :)

If we are going to do trains and bridges, lets do it properly!

That's a very interesting bridge, it's solid concrete without reinforcing. If you inspect it you can see the shuttering marks. McAlpine built it.

A rare example of a Sustrans route feature designed with recumbents in mind on NCN1 at Coppermill Lane
(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/2007-08-28/IMG_0834.sized.jpg)

However, the bridge across the cut there is a total 'mare for recumbents.  Once the polis closed the A503 between Tottenham Hale & Blackhorse Road, meaning I had the choice between a long diversion up to the A406 or going down the towpath, over the cut and under that ^^^^.  I nearly gave up trying to lift the Speedmachine over the barrier on the footbridge.

Okay, what these ones lack in impressiveness they make up for by being shiny and new.  Even the graffiti is fresh...

Regular readers of the rant thread will be aware that Mr Prosser from the council and his fearless (and apparently sleepless) team of Vogon contractors have been building a bypass round Silly Oak.  The eventual aim is to reduce congestion on the Bristol Road by a cunning scheme of frustrating drivers into using alternative means of transport with an endless programme of road closures and diversions.  Or something.

(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/bypass/IMG_2854.sized.jpg)

As well as culverting the Bournebrook, demolishing Tescos (it respawned) and extensive mucking about with traffic lights, this has involved the construction of a new railway bridge:

(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/bypass/IMG_2841.sized.jpg)

And even more excitingly, an aqueduct for the Birmingham and Worcester Canal, which they managed to molish without draining anything, but with the aid of an awesome temporary hydraulic raising access bridge. (Since the resurfacing of the Edgbaston Tunnel, this is now a reasonable fair-weather cycling route to the Gastric Basin in the centre of town.):

(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/bypass/IMG_2838.sized.jpg)

There are also a several of shared-use paths, complete with nice fresh broken glass, allowing you to have fun playing signpost slalom before spending ages waiting at toucan crossings and repairing punctures - which I expect will be a popular alternative to getting mown down by irate taxi drivers on the approach to roundabouts for the local cyclists.

What I hadn't realised is that S Korea is monsoon territory.  I saw several instances of bridges going over what appeared to be dry land, but which evidently floods up in the rains.  There are embankments (see lower left) and to some extent the shallowness of the river bed is exaggerated by the camera angle.

My idea of coming back to Darlo that way on the random pub ride was, sadly, vetoed.

There's an even deeper ford of the Tees near Hurworth. Google maps tends to default to that as the shortest route away from Darlo to the south.

I have discovered that the skew bridge in my photo above is even more odd.  Only half is a real skew arch, with the characteristic helical brick courses in the roof (the engineering behind a skew arch makes my brain melt, but let's just say that a conventional arch would fall down).  The other half of the brick has conventional bricklaying.  The portals at each end aren't parallel!

This has been done in order to accommodate a road junction above and I suspect the skew part was added years after the original, since the houses above are different ages.

Oudenarde, and a perfectly normal road bridge

(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110629_1003.jpg)


until the bells ring, the lights flash and the barriers descend ... and the bridge begins to rise

(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110629_1004.jpg)


until it's risen enough
(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110629_1009.jpg)


the barge passes through
(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110629_1012.jpg)

everyone waits patiently for the bridge to come back down
(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110629_1013.jpg)

and then carries on as if nothing had happened

I like that bridge, it reminds me of a story book I had when very little about a Dutch cow called Henrijke(sp?), who fell in a canal and floated along seeing all sorts of amazing things while placidly chewing away.

I'm curious as to what those 5-lamp traffic lights are at the bridge - what are the 'extra' lights for? I presume they flash to warn that the bridge is rising - but then why the standard three? Or perhaps the whole lot is different?

Yes thanks.  The Transport Pleecemen were going round in threes rather than the usual pairs.  (One who can read, One who can write, and one to keep an eye on two dangerous intellectuals.)

The train left a bit late with lots of electronic beepery over the PA, and crawled out up the slope to Proof House Junction, where we waited for some Cross-Shitty units to clear the junction.  Then the driver put his/her foot down, and we exceeded R17 on the approach to Tamworth.

Hope you're safe from the dodgy behaviour.  You have a ferocious attack kitty to set on them.

The bridge that spans the whole picture is an old railway viaduct.  It used to carry the Dundee-Forfar railway line but now has a foot/cycle path over the top.

I didn't get a picture of the Pensford viaduct when I was there yesterday, but next time I'm out that way I'll try to remember to take a camera. It'll only be from underneath though!

I've just discovered there's an official website for the project which includes many interesting photos of the construction of the two bridges:

http://www.sellyoaknewroadphase2.co.uk/4.html

Even more impressive than the canal diversion is the construction of the railway bridge: they molished an earthwork platform at bridge-height off to the side, on which to mantle the bridge, then jacked the completed article up on hydraulic trolley things and *drove* it into position while the railway was closed over Christmas.  When they first jacked it up the bridge sagged a bit too much for the travel of the jacks, so they bunged 125 tonnes of railway ballast in the middle to straighten it out!

The new road is apparently now open, but my legs are on strike after battling with incessant headwind yesterday and keep cramping when I try to walk, so I'm going to have to wait to try out exciting new shared-use paths.

Some people may have the impression that I went to France to ride PBP.

In fact the main purpose of the trip was to gather photos for this thread.

For starters here's the bridge over the Sarthe at Fresnay-sur-Sarthe. The PBP route passes through this town, but you don't get to see its best bits. I had ridden through it eight times before this trip and never realised what a gem it is.

The Viaduct at Saint-Georges-le-Gault
Quote from: an information board on site
The decision to construct the 82km Le Mans - Alengon tramway was made on 13th July 1908. In 1913, after having decided to go through St Georges le Gaultier, it became evident that a long viaduct would be required to carry the tramway. The 150m viaduct spans the Vaudelle valley. The builder Louis Parenfeau from Angers, using the then revolutionary Hennebique Technique of reinforced concrete, built a structure which towers.

The two end sections of the Alencon - Asse-le-Boisne and Le Mans - Segrie passing by the viaduct came into service in 1914 and 1915 respectively, but the War stopped construction. Despite its huge cost the viaduct was never used for it original purpose. Rails were never laid, and trains never crossed. Today the viaduct is used for bungy jumping.

The paradox of this construction is summed up in its comic name, "The Father Ubu Viaduct" (le pere Ubu is a hapless, comic character in French literature).

A bridge over a disused railway line, now a voie verte which runs for 65 km between Alençon and Condé sur Huisne, via Mortagne au Perche (which must defy the laws of physics by being a flattish route into and out of Mortagne).

Lovely, lovely bridges (and to think, someone said there weren't any on that ride!) and it makes it almost worth being back at work since here I can actually see them on a proper monitor rather than the somewhat limited screen of a not-very-smart-phone :)  It's like a cunning ploy to make me want to ride proper audax distances...

There aren't many - there's the one going into Brest, the Pont Albert Louppe with the new cable-stayed jobbie next to it (le Pont de l'Iroise, see below) which punctuates the ride nicely, much as the Menai Bridge does on the Chapman, and an old stone one at Ambrieres les Vallées, but I can't think of any more off the top of my head.

Mine were taken on my leisurely 2000 km ride to the start, and I didn't take a camera on PBP itself.

Does an aqueduct count?

Aqueduc de Maintenon. 955 m long, 28.5 m high, 47 arches. There were meant to be 3 levels of arches (like the Pont du Gard)

Work started in 1685. Part of a grandiose scheme to provide water for the Louis XIV's fountains at Versailles, involving damming the river Eure at Pontguin (near Senonches) and building a 80km canal. 30,000 men were employed in its construction, but work was abandoned in 1688, never to be resumed, when most of the workforce went off to fight in the Nine Years War. Various bits of the scheme can still be found (including the 'lake' next to the campsite in St Quentin en Yvelines).

I was along that road (A830) yesterday and took a photo of that very bridge with a view to putting it on here.  ::-)

Jane, did you ride along that road? I've ridden the A830 many times from Lochailort east to Fort William, as part of the Daylight 600, but never west to Maillaig. I wouldn't fancy it on a bike tbh.

I don't, but actually stayed in Gunnison itself the night before that was taken, and encountered said river again yesterday.  Bridges were crap, though.  To make up for it, there's two bridges today.

It is the rather overgrown path off the farm track I was riding along. I knew there was a river there because I could hear the water pouring over a weir.

After a bit of scrambling around I got to see the bridge

The last time I rode over it, it was so foggy you could see neither the tops of the towers nor the river.  I had the same experience the last time I drove over the Golden Gate bridge as well chiz.

So there I was, making my way down the Belgian coast somewhere near Zeebrugge, when I noticed that the road (including cyclepath) had reared up ahead of me.
(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110713_1338.jpg)
Nothing appeared to be happening, so I did a U-turn and found another crossing, then found the other sided of the bridge, and the reason it was open.

A fine day for bridge-spotting in Shropshire today.

Starting at Bridgnorth
(http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6169/6185710048_cf3ace4170.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/6185710048/)

then upstream by the Severn to Coalport Bridge. The pub next to the bridge is The Woodbridge. Presumably a wooden bridge existed here before this one, and was so named to distinguish it from the famous ferrous one a couple of miles upstream.

Thompson River near Hell's Gate BC (terrific cock-up with the wild salmon they were expecting 2million and got 40 (million!) last year; tasted nice though  :P

Hell's Gate; the Alum Bay of BC (we decided to be super hard and walk but decided it was worth the unadvertised single fare to take the red bus thingy back up)

(http://www.fotothing.com/photos/73d/73df1e6aa9c268d7336cbe633f5cf1b1.jpg?ts=1317421860)

Vancouver; Lions Gate bridge from Stanley Park; just to prove they have shit weather too sometimes (that speck in the sky is how important people commute to and from Victoria, by seaplane)

(http://www.fotothing.com/photos/35c/35c641627e4e2eeb8a9fb4879bc32f0b.jpg?ts=1317421901)

not sure if this counts as a bridge but prolly;  it's Peak2Peak the biggest longest highest everythingest gondola in the World and all it does is go between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, apparently it drops right down to a mere 1417ft at its lowest point

Not as lovely as Dentdale, but here is a snap (sorry, it's from my phone as the rest of the group were disappearing and I didn't know the route :-[ )

This is the Dartford Bridge, but with a new bridge they've built especially for Jurek (OK, and buses - it has barriers both ends) underneath, which we'd just ridden over.  I think Tim Hall got a better shot contre-jour.

I went on a bridge hunt yesterday. I blame this thread for the injuries sustained whilst beating my way through 6foot high nettles, mud, clambering over barbed wire fences, down ditches where bridges should have been, through fern covered gorges and over fallen trees covered with moss. I did however find the bridges and will only do that walk again in winter or spring or when armed with a machete.

Feeling somewhat nettle sore today. Pictures to follow when I have edited them down. One of the bridges is 'BRB DDN 31' and I don't have a number for the other one (presumably becasue it carries a private track rather than a public road).

Tom Otter's Bridge, at Drinsey Nook, which carries the A57 between Sheffield and Lincoln. The left hand end is in Nottinghamshire, the right hand end in Lincolnshire. The bridge itself isn't much, but see below for the fascinating tale of Tom Otter.
(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5095/5576922572_6b03d2364d.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/5576922572/)

1805 - the pregnant Mary Kirkman named Tom Otter as the father of her unborn child, and he was forced to marry her. On their wedding night, be beat her to death with a fence post.

1806 - Tom Otter is found guilty and sentenced to death, and the judge, thinking 'hanging's too good for him', orders his body, after execution at Lincoln, to be enclosed in chains and hung from a gibbet post at the scene of the murder (close to the bridge).   This duly happens. A large crowd is present at the erection of the gibbet post, and one man is killed when the body, enclosed in irons, falls from the gibbet.

1811 - A Featherpoke (long-tailed tit) is reported to have built its nest under his jawbone, and returned the following year.

1850 - the gibbet post is blown down in a gale

Those are the bare facts. The gibbet post was a local landmark for 45 years, with the chains clanking in the wind, but remained part of local folklore for many years afterwards, and appeared in children's rhymes until 1900, and is also mentioned in a syndicated thriller in 1874. On the current OS maps, within a square mile are Tom Otter's Lane, Gibbet Wood, Gibbet Wood Farm, and Gibbet Lane Cottages.

It is also reported that the fence post used in the murder was attached to the wall in the Sun Inn, Saxilby, where Mary Kirkman's body was taken. On the anniversary of the murder, the post would disappear from the wall and would be found at the scene of the murder. This continued when it was placed on the wall of a different pub. In the end the Bishop of Lincoln ordered that it should be taken down and burnt in the yard of Lincoln Cathedral.

The blood which had dripped from the body stained the steps of the Sun Inn, and no amount of scrubbing could remove the stains. [OT Non-bridge photo, but taken from the bank of a canal and within sight of at least 2 bridges]

1806 - Tom Otter is found guilty and sentenced to death, and the judge, thinking 'hanging's too good for him', orders his body, after execution at Lincoln, to be enclosed in chains and hung from a gibbet post at the scene of the murder (close to the bridge).

Presumably, the judge took into account his profession when he decided that hanging was too good for him: he was a banker.

A 'banker' who was employed maintaining the banks of the Fossdyke Canal and the Swanpool in Lincoln. The word used in The Times was 'ditcher'.

Were you on a boat on the Tyne, Aidan?

No, I was on a bike ;D  There's actually a bend in the river and as I cycled past I saw  that shot and had to take it. Must say I was very please with it  :thumbsup:


There are 7 bridges in that picture!

Kirchenfeldbrücke over the River Aar in Bern, Switzerland, with the river still high after the 2005 floods (compare with Google Street View (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=46.9459,7.4485&ll=46.944549,7.445598&spn=0.017755,0.028925&t=m&z=15&vpsrc=0&layer=c&cbll=46.944587,7.445464&panoid=vikZmgZoNgyj77wJIKp8yw&cbp=12,69.3,,1,-3) — there's a metre or so difference in the water level).

This has to be one of the most impressive bridges I have crossed.. It has just the right amount of disconcerting swing and you can only just see to the bottom of the gorge.

Actually my PlanA e2e routeplan was based on a theme of bridges.I actually rode PlanC with makeitupsometimes modifications.

I'd recommend the Great Glen as a route with lots of bridges, and nice scenery (it dominates the photos (https://picasaweb.google.com/115373950768738153823/GreatGlenAndTheCairngorms) I took of the trip).

Either start at Fort William and ride it in a couple days (stop at Fort Augustus), or Oban/Connel Ferry and ride it in three (stop at FW and FA). You can use Youth Hostels all the way up and catch the train back from Inverness. There are a few shortish stretches of main road, some comedy off roading (Forestry Commission style) and only one serious Optical Illusion :).

I had a fairly entertaining conversation with SFUN (the slightly bonkers belgian audaxer - non-cyclist to BPB ancien, on a £150 bike, in one year) yesterday as we were wandering round Whitby.  He commented that now that he'd been to England he sort of understood the bridge thing a bit more, having previously been just a little perplexed by Deano's propensity for getting the camera out at every river crossing.  Because over here (and bear in mind we were crossing the swing bridge at the time) "you guys have really great bridges!".

I wonder if we have another convert....

I remember an article in C+ magazine, way back around 1998 or so (when it was still a decent read), in which three blokes went cycling round Asturias in Northern Spain as a sort of extended cyclist's stag do, and one of them - can't remember if it was the groom-to-be - made them stop at every bridge so he could tell them about what a marvel of engineering each one was. In that mountainous, ravine landscape, they were looking at a wonderful lot of bridges.

My favourite type of bridge:

No, it's not pretty, but it is over the M25 escaping from London.

Here's another odd one (mind your head!):

I think that's in East Horsley.

You're not allowed to cycle over the Chain Bridge, for some reason (unless they've changed the rules since I was there) which means people ride on the pavement there instead. It's none too wide for that, really.

Yep, it's a shared path for peds & cyclists &, as you say, rather narrow. Especially for recumbent riders at the bridge stancion (?) bits where there are a number of sharp corners to negotiate. It was the same on the other bridges too. I used the Ezsebet Bridge more often and that was straighter & wider.

As you've lived in Budapest, do you know the reason cycling is not allowed on those bridges?

I don't remember seeing any cyclepath signs on the pavement, but probably I just didn't notice them. I do remember that on one of those corners Mrs Cudzo got a handlebar in the belly- she was pregnant at the time, a large target!!! No harm done though.

Yep (although it was Hombase not B&Q I think).

Unfortunately they put the station back exactly as it was after filming, the sofas, carpets and painted murals would have brightened the station up no end.

They are old bridges - well rebuilt after WW2, but unchanged in layout. The road sections are very narrow and have tram lines laid into the road surfaces. Given the Hungarian disdain for safety, I really wouldn't want to be on the same section of narrow road as cars and trams. The Chain Bridge foot/cyclepaths are not fit for purpose though, I'll agree, especially in tourist season. They could have one side for peds & the other for bikes, I suppose...

A little known fact: The Marlow Thames Bridge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marlow_Bridge) was a warm up for the Danube version...

It was February when we there, so hardly tourist season!

Still, I used to live almost next to a pontoon bridge in the middle of Warsaw, built after WWII, which had no pedestrian access whatsoever. I can't remember if you were allowed to cycle over it, it never looked appealing to me. It was finally replaced with a proper bridge, complete with pavement and strong enough for buses, in 2001.

It led (eventually, after some very vague ınstructions from the Serbian locals, but thıs was understandable as I could only ask for the Must, whıch is Serbian for bridge), to a beautiful lımestone dene which reminded me forcefully of the path to Summerhill Force or one of the other side valleys off Teesdale.

A prelımınary bridge:

There were stepping stones up to the natural bridge, but since they had slipping-and-falling-off written all over them, I paddled through ınstead.

The bridge itself was more of a cave; I went so far ın and couldn't see the other side.

Regardless, ıt was a lovely detour.  When I was walkıng out, the local kıds were floatıng tealıghts down the river - presumably an Eastern European varıatin of Flaming Pooh Sticks, and one of the parents told me I was the first tourist ever to visit it.  It's a must-see.

I've no idea what they were doing, but in Poland there's a similar tradition on Midsummer's Night. Girls are supposed to float the candles downstream and the boy that fishes a girl's candle out of the water is destined to marry her. I guess it's a picturesque excuse for folklore rumpy-pumpy!

Back in October, we did the coastal walk from Widemouth to Crackington Haven. Beautiful, stunning scenery. Extremely windy so fairly dodgy at times, and the steep descents were painful on the knees.  As soon as you reach the bottom of the cliff, it's a quick 'breather' and then another climb. Here's a nice little bridge on route, and where it sat in the great scheme of things. It was steep!!! If you look on the other cliff, you can make out where the path takes you.

That is just the type of bridge that made my rear end do the 'Sixpence- Half Crown Shuffle' when I was patrolling Northern Ireland :o

I await photos of bridges over the Tigris ;)

I thought the last one was quıte handsome, but the camera batteries were running out so I didn't get a satisfactory shot.  And you'll have a long wait for Tigris bridges, as I'm pretty sure I'll always be east and north of ıt.

This bridge over the Aras was a bit more arresting (the Aras goes on to form the border between Turkey and Azerbaijan, and some sources claim ıt as the location of the Garden of Eden).

Packhorse bridge (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/moulton-packhorse-bridge/history-and-research/) over the river Kennett in Moulton, Suffolk. The river has shrunk a great deal since the 15th century: in normal conditions there's just a trickle running through a culvert under the road here.

English Heritage says (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/moulton-packhorse-bridge/history-and-research/):

Quote
The bridge is built of flint and stone rubble, with plain parapets, and the edges of the arches are made of brick.

It is about 1.6 miles from the M4 to Windsor station, though not all of that is the bridge (AFAICT the bridge runs about 1.25 miles.) The Tay bridge is 2 miles long in the bit across water and another quarter of a mile on arches like the Windsor bridge.

When you cross the Forth Road bridge ensure you do it onna bike.
I've crossed it innumerable times in a car & it's quite impressive.
Only crossed it once onna bike & was fascinated by the engineering & scale in close up: & at dawdling speed it was a more intimate experience.

Don't cross t'other bridge onna bike  ;)

Bridge over the River Wye in Ashford in the Water near Buxton. The pen opposite is where the farmers would herd their sheep and make them swim across to their lambs on the other side for a wash.
Nowadays the bridge is only a foot bridge or bikes. It was pretty full and fast yesterday. I wondered how often it was Ashford under Water as some of the properties are very close to the bank.

We spotted this yesterday, but didn't have the time to get a photo, so we stopped by this morning for you.  It's a footbridge over the railway from West Croydon through to Waddon, quite near Waddon station, as it happens.  It's a bit hard to photograph because of fences, trees and the like, and the third photo is a bit askew because I was standing on the edge of a wall in a private car park, leaning round the end of a high wall, and not really able to see the screen to compose.  But you get the idea.

A-haa!
We went past that on our way to York for the AUK AGM drink-a-thon. I haven't really mastered photography from the stoker seat yet, so I didn't get to snap it.

It was a lot nicer weather when you were there!

We were there in August.  It was a tad drizzly, but mostly fine.

It's a right long thing.  Quite a feat of engineering.

This is one we passed in the gloom on the WARTY, but fortunately, we'd passed it last time in the light.

I don't know where it is, really, but I am sure Mr Bagger can enlighten us.

Anytime I look at that I think of the thousands of man-hours of labour that must have gone into laying those bricks, and the wonderful basic skill of mixing a mortar and laying bricks with the precision that has lasted so many decades.

Some bridges snapped on a walk along the banks of the Wharfe from Burnall to Grassington (and back) on a dull day between Xmas and New Year.

South London is criss-crossed with high level railways, and there is a wide variety of bridges.  For some reason, near Herne Hill, there are some more decorative ones.  The first here is on Hunts Slip Road, but is weak, so is narrowed, and one parapet is fenced off.

As I was starting to take photos, a troop of prep school boys in PE kit emerged from a field, and filed across the bridge.  I was standing there with my camera, waiting for them as they took ages to go by.  Seemed like hundred of them. :-\

As you can see, the light was already going, but I did what I could.  I would have had a better angle on it, but there are trees both sides, and the best viewpoint was in the middle of the road.  As you may know, there are a lot of schools round there, and there were lots of mummies in their wankpanzers... :-\

The monogram seems to read AC.  I'm not sure of the significance.

The Si-o Seah Bridge is amazing. Deano is in bridge heaven!

This one is near Stanton Drew, better known for its stone circles, but this is also marked as an "antiquity" on the OS map. There is some kind of plaque above the left arch, but I couldn't read it and you can hardly see it in this photo, which, I'm sorry, is rather blurry - phone pic in fading light.

I recognised the bridge, but I couldn't remember the stones. Turns out there was rather more water on Dec. 27th.

On our return journey later in the day, there were a lot more people about. The bridge is only wide enough for one-way crossing, so there was a queue at one side or the other waiting to cross.

Less blue, but a very interesting bridge over the lower Ouse.  Used to be a swing bridge, but now static and part of the South Downs Way

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v326/ado15/IMAG0213.jpg)

Swinging section.  It was operated by a crank from on the bridge section, which turned a wheel against the large toothed cog you can see at the top of the pillars.  It ran on the small wheels round the top of the large cog.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v326/ado15/IMAG0214.jpg)

Underneath, and another view of the cog mechanism.  Not a view I am very familiar with. ;D
If you look carefully, you can see the drive cog.

They're laying in the pillars for yet-another bridge, I think.

I almost got bitten by a monkey - I think it was a rhesus. I was surprised how vicious they can be, and what huge canines they have. But I wasn't on a bridge at the time.

Woodgate Valley Country Park  (which we decided links Mordor to The Shire[1])

The Pooh Sticks is disappointing, and the gaps between the concrete knobbles on the approach to the ford prevent anything from happening, but we found a bridge and took a picture for the thread anyway.

There are loads of really good stepping stones nearby, though.

Some bridges from the Himalayan railway from Shimla to Kalka. There are about 888 bridges on this 97-km length of track.  I may have missed one or two.

I'm curious as to what those 5-lamp traffic lights are at the bridge - what are the 'extra' lights for? I presume they flash to warn that the bridge is rising - but then why the standard three? Or perhaps the whole lot is different?
No idea. I'll just have to got back and find out.

Sounds like a job for google streetview?

Not (yet) in Belgium.

Streetview now available in Belgium

(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/oudenarde.jpg)(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/oudenarde-1.jpg)

... which must mean that you can turn left (Loise Mariekaai) or right (Bourgondestraat) along the bank of the Schelde but not go straight on along the N453, obviously.

I imagine the other two lights are amber and green (none of the lights are showing on the other side when the bridge is down). But I'll be back there in July just to check.

The steetview car jumped the queue, which is why it's on the LHS of the road.

By the way, the Tour of Flanders will be crossing this bridge on Sunday before they start the 3 finishing loops.

Oh, please do  :)

Today I stopped and sat (and lay on my belly to peep over the edge and watch the water below) on a bridge, with a view on another bridge, under a viaduct. Bonus points for the well timed train passing overhead. No pics because it deserves much better that the crappy camera phone and anyway others have already posted splendid photos of the spot, but in the spring sunshine it was quite possibly the most perfect place in the world to be. When I cark it, pls to be scattering my remains there?

Somewhere in the vicinity of Bettisfield on the Shropshire Union Canal, where I and jogler of this parish did a bit of comedy off-roading on mildly inappropriate (or in his case, inappropriately loaded) bikes at the weekend.

Padstow to Wadebridge by road is 8 hilly miles; by bike on the Camel trail (over this bridge) is a flat 5.
No wonder the train used to take only 10 minutes, when the bus now takes 30.

Nice pic. We failed to snap that amazing structure on the way back, but got one of a rather shorter bridge in the vicinity that I'll post shortly.

On a minor point of pedantry, it's apparently the longest brick-built viaduct across a valley in Britain. The viaduct on the Deptford/Greenwich line from London Bridge is also brick and about 3 times longer. I wrote "apparently" above as I was under the impression that the Welland Viaduct was the longest of its kind in Europe rather than just Britain, but my google-fu hasn't turned up anything longer, anywhere. Anyone able to comment on the longest in Europe/the World?

Just look at the handrail on that bridge!! Yes, yes, okay, it's not much of a bridge pic and, in fact, it's not much of a bridge. You can just about get two people walking side-by-side, and horse riders are asked to dismount. Anyhoo, just look at the lovely Cuckmere river as it meanders sluggishly away to the sea a couple of miles away.

If you're serious, I happen to know where you can get one (and a signal box to go with it for the full effect) - not sure how you'd get it on a bike trailer...

Not sure how I'd fit it in the yard!

All that remains of the Severn Railway Bridge. It was destroyed in 1960 when two barges carrying petrol overshot the entrance to Sharpness Docks in strong tide and winds, hit column 17, breaking a gas main and an electricity cable, causing a huge fire. Apparently the remains of the two barges are still visible at low tide.

Yep, main route into Cheshire, lots of end to enders use it too. Crossings of the ship canal are few and far between, the only other one between Eccles in Manc and Warrington that's not a motorway is Irlam locks, but can't find a decent image to link to at the mo

Smethwick Galton Bridge Railway Station (that's the high-level platform on the bridge), with the original Galton Bridge behind it and then the Galton Tunnel in the distance.  As usual, the phone camera doesn't do it justice.

That's very clever. A bit like firing arrows from the saddle of a galloping horse, only arguably more useful.

A few from our Kentish jaunt:

Railway bridge near Selling (I think)
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v326/ado15/IMAG0510.jpg)

That's actually at Chartham too. A friend of mine has a studio just the other side of that bridge. (As did Hugh Hopper too, for all you Canterbury aficionados).

I'm not sure about the Ightham one either. It looks very familiar.

A few from our Kentish jaunt:

Old bridge, Aylesford
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v326/ado15/IMAG0489.jpg)


I can't quite work out what bank you are taking that image from. If the Bailey Bridge is behind you, then my Great Gran and Great Aunt lived on the houses out of shot to the left (the first houses on the left after crossing the level crossing towards the bridge) and my Gran went to school at the school opposite the houses. A lovely little village.

Jades Crossing- I rmember the incident and the start of the campaign for the bridge. Very sad and scandalous, piss poor planning in not installing a facility in the first place.
Title: Re: Bridges for CrinklyLion (and everyone else!)
Post by: clarion on June 06, 2012, 09:50:01 am
Aylesford: I was on the North bank in the village, near the tidal flood gate (which answered our question about whether the river was tidal that far up, given that it seemed to be flowing inland at the time ;D ).  I hadn't been aware of the old bridge, and Butterfly spotted it at the last minute, bit was behind me.  So we crossed the new bridge, but, on principle, went and crossed and recrossed the old bridge.  We also made a point of going over it on the way home.

Jade's Crossing: It is an impressive achievement, and reminder of the dangers of surrendering our public spaces to motor vehicles, especially because it is prominently labelled as Jade's Crossing, and has a silhouette of a child doing ballet (presumably from a photo of Jade herself) on it.  Such deaths occur in many places, but rarely does anything so positive result.

@nicknack: I confess I'm not sure where the motorway bridge was.  We passed several on our way.  It's not Sandling, I know that.  Nor is it the M25, which we went over.  Last night, fatigued brains could only presume it was at Ightham.

Ah!  That makes sense.  Butterfly thought it might be the A2, but I had been sure it was one of the motorways.  Combination of tiredness, shockingly poor memory and hundreds of km of unfamiliar roads ;D

I really enjoyed the riding.  Most of it was very quiet.  I really wouldn't have minded a weekend with less rain, but I shan't grumble.

A summary of the bridges we encountered in NZ, some dead boring, some quite interesting.  the joint road/rail ones a bit worrying...   

I'm a bit odd about bridges, I like bouncy ones, and a friend was very forcefully telling me you could make the Connel Ferry bridge in Scotland bounce by persistent jumping up and down.  He was lying to me, and the policemen on duty there (as the traffic lights had failed) were very puzzled indeed by my antics.  Still, they stopped the traffic so I could take pictures from the middle of the road, so they obviously thought that I was no worse than harmlessly mad.  Said friend is now an ex-friend... because he died.

just realised that this one is also in the lot I posted yesterday!  so not only have I been to NZ, but I've crossed the same bridge as the Pingus!

It is good to see all these and think "I've seen that one", and then think that bridge aficionados are evidently not that rare, at least on YACF.

It's the Marykirk bridge, between Marykirk and North Craigo.

This one:
https://maps.google.co.uk/?ll=56.775938,-2.51485&spn=0.000012,0.009645&t=m&layer=c&cbll=56.776027,-2.514723&panoid=aE-vXG5GzTYIjKUOP7n7Pg&cbp=12,212.13,,0,24.03&hnear=Peterculter,+Aberdeen+City,+United+Kingdom&z=17

The one Eck mentions has ironwork along the parapets.

<ETA> To be fair, I need to mention that I do cycle across it several times a week, and you notice details when on the bike that you miss in the car.   The circle motifs on the side are particularly recognisable, and can be seen on the approach.

There are not many other bridges across the N. Esk which could be in contention.   The A92 bridge is very much taller, with different detailing and the old railway viaduct would likely be visible, depending on direction.   The 'best' bridge is the one at Gannochy between Edzell and Fettercairn, where it spans the bottom of the Gorge Section, which is where paddlers get out having run the rapids and drops of the main Gorge Section.   It's a grade 4 paddle, which is an interesting paddle at the best of times, and can be a serious undertaking depending on river level.

Exciting brummie bridge news: The one on Dogpoo[l] Lane, posted previously in this thread:

...is about to come under long-term attack by molishers.  Something to do with reducing the risk of flooding, or drainage, or something.

Rumour has it that they're going to be mantling a temporary bridge for pedestrians, cyclists and the series of tubes carried beneath the surface of the existing one.  Being somewhat more on the ball than we were when they drove the rail bridge into place over the bypass last christmas, your resident Mad Recumbent Women™ will endeavour to actually take some photos.  If it ever stops bloody raining.

Looks to me like that was originally a single span flat arch bridge with no obstruction in the river. They have obviously had to add additional supports to the underside of the arch (the two concrete plinths and the steel joists) to achieve the current weight limit.

Bridges are notorious constrictions of rivers in spate as the roads are built above the flood level and are effectively dams across the flood plane with only the opening of the bridge to let the water through. Flooding upstream of a bridge is common.

To remove the additional supports will improve the capacity of the channel signifficantly but that would require replacing the bridge with a stronger flat structure or a hump back.

ETA

I must have ridden over that bridge dozens of times without realising that it had had to be strengthened underneath like that.

Yeah.  It took me a while to realise it was a bridge at all, let alone a slightly botched and rather pretty one.  I think it's because if you're riding along the path, you're inevitably concentrating on the upcoming bend and bollards, negotiating a path around any other users and checking to see if the road is clear.  I only really noticed the bridge when something gave me reason to stop there.

As for hidden bridges, this one:

is about half way up this road:

There are people who have been riding this road for most of their life and who now collect a pension who never realised there was a bridge there. It was taken out of service in about 1860 mind you..

What is really amazing is how little power it uses to lift its load... it takes just 1.5 kW of electricity - the same as boiling a couple of kettles.

American kettles maybe.  Your typical BRITONS kettle has a sensible power output, compatible with making a proper cup of tea in a reasonable time frame.  Not that it matters - it's the same amount of energy after all - it's just that we tend not to use shaver plugs and bell wire to carry double the current, and make up for the resulting reduction in electrical fires with the distinctive nocturnal yelp-hop of someone treading on the business end of a BS1363 plug in bare feet.

But I digress.  The true BRITISH unit of power is the one bar electric fire, equivalent to 0.577milliDoubleDeckerBus-FootballPitchLengths/Fortnight.

Falkirk is the Swindon of the central belt. The only redeeming feature is that there are god connections to get out of it by, and the wheel (which suffers a peculiar lack of signposting, as if they didn't want anyone to realise there is something decent there.)

I have to say there was excellent signposting on the roads, including the motorways.  Perhaps they only want people to arrive by car?  That said, one of the NCN routes runs right past it and there were loads of bike stands...

Top one, I think is London Bridge upstream to Westminster Bridge (London Bridge, Cannon St (rail), Southwark Bridge, Millennium Bridge (foot), Blackfriars Bridge (rail), Blackfriars Bridge (road), Waterloo Bridge, Hungerford Bridge (rail/foot), Westminster Bridge).  Tower Bridge may be in the mist at the bottom.

Second is Lambeth, Westminster and Hungerford (rail/foot) (l-r)

Third is Chelsea Bridge and Grosvenor Bridge (rail)

Nice one Deaners. I counter with this:

Aln railway viaduct at Lesbury (http://www.travellingartgallery.com/landscape/print/page/captions.html) Underneath the individual images, some of them have a truncated caption. But if you click on the researched caption, it gives a fuller explanation*.

And if you go here: http://www.travellingartgallery.com/landscape/print/artist/list.html it has a list of railway carriage artists; a lot who covered painting bridges of course!

Have a happy hour or so trawling through.

*That appears to be bollocks. Tried a couple of others, and it keeps going back to Stanle Badmin's painting of Alnmouth. Grrrrr!

And, finally, a very poor shot grabbed from a moving train.  This is the bridge which carries the pipeline from the Elan Valley to Frankley, which supplies Birmingham with Welsh water, over the Severn.  The pipeline is an ingenious piece of engineering, combining many solutions to carry the water 73 miles without pumping.

SNAP! Though I've always known in as Welland Viaduct, sadly no bonus train for me, I did see it in one of the stations Between Peterborough and Leicester on Monday, Melton?  Well, what I could see of it through the rows of spotters.

Another summer during which, according to the contents of my SD card, I toured the bridges of Europe.

First off, Belgium.

A rather prosaic bridge over the Mandel at Izegem
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8301/7979196586_df77d3276f_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979196586/)

A footbridge over the Mandel at Ingelmunster.
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8451/7979198254_a0f856a366_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979198254/)

Another bridge over the Mandel (I think)
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8296/7979199578_7dba1474a8_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979199578/)

A lock & bridge combo over the Leie
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8170/7979200660_f7c745238f_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979200660/)

A vertical-lift bridge encountered on the Willebroek Canal
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8180/7979201820_cc82e483b5_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979201820/)

... and another
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8303/7979201097_6b519a009e_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979201097/)

... and another, this time rather more skeletal, with some impressive cables and suchlike.
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8177/7979203701_3b8b6f021d_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979203701/)

This one was doing its best to look colourful in rather difficult circumstances
(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8457/7979206877_fa47434a0e_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner/7979206877/)

A pedestrian/cyclist bridge somewhere north of Mechelen

A bridge in Aarschot. The building is Hertogensmolens (duke's mill)
From the upstream side:

and downstream (with added bicycle)

Alas not as I only spent long enough not in the car while in Memphis to smoke a fag and take a handful of pictures.  Tight schedule, innit.  The only Kultural thing I've taken in thus far has been the Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo TX, but I plan on visiting the Darlington Raceway Museum tomorrow.

And it doesn't open until 10 am so I can have a lie in :)

Not just any bridge but the real, the actual Pont de Normandie!

It costs a whole €5 to cross but by $Deity it don't half save some arse getting to Calais.

Another one deserving its own post is this.

Historic, evocative and very emotional.

Here's the one it replaced. There's more than one or two bullet holes in it . . .

There is a new cafe across the road from the old one and in the usual fit of Ryan-based accuracy they have erected an effigy of a USAnian soldier. The good lady of the 'Pegasus' is furious.

The Pont-Saint-Martin is a Roman segmental arch bridge in the Aosta Valley in Italy dating to the 1st century BC.
The span is 103 feet (31.4 m)[1] according to recent research, but frequently stated to be 35.64 m or 36.65 m

Two for Crinkly Lion.  Can't remember where this first one is - somewhere South of Cambridge where we stopped to regroup

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v326/ado15/IMG_1888.jpg)

This next is at Audley End.  You descend to it, so you get a good swoop up and over.  Just as you clock the balustrading, and start thinking, 'Hey, this is a bit of a fancy bridge', you spot the big house.  Folk were kind enough to wait while I went back to take the photos.

Some years ago, I used to eat my lunch on or near that bridge most Thursdays.

One year there was a black swan's nest just upstream from the bridge. THe mother laid 7 eggs, 4 of which hatched. After a few weeks, none of the cygnets were left, I assume the victims of foxes.

Between Hertford and Welwyn Garden City, there used to be a branch line, which is now a cycle and pedestrian route.  It passes under the north-south line, which has a large viaduct.  I couldn't encompass it in one photo, so I took three.  One was this morning, the other two were last night, in fading light and rain.

If you're referring to the last one - the cable-stayed Ponte Vasco da Gama and its 17km or so of viaducts, then at least it's not as noisy as this Scottish one  - Civils silence noisy bridge (http://www.nce.co.uk/civils-silence-noisy-bridge/795059.article)! I spent a lot of time trying to get the sun on the fan of stays, and ended up with far too many pictures.

Madeira's full of dramatic new concrete bridges along the coast roads - and little spans across the levadas as well.

Still waters run deep. The Dighty burn (pronounced Dick tee) runs for about 15 miles from Lundie around Dundee to the sea at Monifeith. It was once one of the most polluted streams, powering tens of mills and feeding bleaching ponds and so on. This is about 5 miles from the source, with about 10 to go to the sea.

And now, a bridge saved from oblivion! Or at least, the clutches of the Iranian authorities. As you're not meant to photograph important bits of infrastructure, I deleted these photos at the time, but I've finally got around to recovering them from the memory card.

I'm quite pleased, as it's a hell of a bridge. There's sticking it to the (Iranian) man.

I don't have a picture of it, I'm afraid, but when I collected the Cubs from after school club one of the playworkers said "Oh, I must show you something!". 

EldestCub, with a few others, was industriously tidying away a load of string and wooden blocks, at the time.  I hustled the Smallest into his coat and, as we were collecting belongings, the playworker came and showed me a picture they had taken on the club camera.

EC and friends had constructed the most simply marvellous suspension bridge from blocks and wool. And when told to tidy it away he had apparently said, "But I want to show my mum!  She LOVES bridges!"

Oh, I like pretty much all bridges.  Even, as I believe I've said before, the terribly dull ones over motorways, sometimes.  One day I'll be pissed enough to attempt to explain it.  Although probably not very successfully.  Ask Interzen, who listened patiently but looked bemused.

Oh, jolly good play there!  Top quality :D
Quantity maybe, but not quality - neither photographically nor ponta..,. ponta...  (any suggestions for a word meaning the quality of bridgy-ness?  Ponta-flucta-leonidy?)

Pontalogically 8)

Ah, I thought I recognuised dear old dismal dribblehead.  I really wanted to see this work of art, and when I eventually got a chance, it was bloody 'orrible, wet, dismal and generally vile...  Lovely viaduct, and one day I may actually see it properly!  A bit like Loch Ness, I have driven the entire length of it on the road alongside a couple of times, but have never seen the loch.

I didn't stop for a photo because I'm rubbish, but imagine if you will one of North Worcestershire's finest gaping potholes, filled to some unseen depths with an abundance of slowly trickling farm runoff.  And a piece of broken fence panel fallen, presumably from the back of a vehicle, across it in a manner far too reminiscent of a hedgehog-bridge to suggest that the universe doesn't have a sense of humour.

I giggled so much I nearly failed to avoid the next gaping pothole.

And, in what counts as a minor tragedy for bridge enthusiasts but is probably good news for hedgehogs and cyclists, someone has only gone and filled in that whole series of gaping potholes with a substance that could charitably be described as 'tarmac'.  The bridge itself was nowhere to be seen.  So the hedgehog bridge will forever remain unphotographed.  :(

Yes. Kim particularly loves that bridge (turn right after crossing, go on 50 yards, turn left, go "OhFuggit", get off bike and walk up to the butter market)

Yes!  That's where I parted company with the peloton on the return from Tan Hill to Darlo a couple of years ago.  It wasn't the hill on the bridge, which is Deano flat but I didn't get through the lights with the others and they seemed in a hurry!

I wonder what the curious half arches on the right signify?

The road goes 90 left onto the bridge at each end, judging from the colour sometime recently someone has made some very sympathetic alterations to the bridge to allow the corners to be opened out for longer vehicles and to move the pavement back a bit.

Post by: Peter on April 20, 2013, 01:09:44 am
Thanks for that, Matthew.  your conclusions look good, though I'm not quite sure about sympathetic!  Maybe when it's weathered a bit the odd arches will be less odd.

This may not be much of a bridge, but it's mine. Partly. One sixth mine.

compared to a re-inforced concrete slab across from the bridge to the bank those arches will weather in to match in the next couple of years and then whilst odd will not look out of place.

I don't think they're very recent. The bridge is on the main Durham-Bowes road, and they probably date from the eighties. I vaguely remember stories of HGVs being stuck on the bridge. There's now a weight limit on the bridge, and HGVs are diverted away from Barney.

I was trying to find a way across the Moss. A former mire that was drained int eh early 1800's for the railway and is criss-crossed by deep drainage ditches. Unfortunately when I got to the next ditch I was out of time and bridges.

This one's a feature of the Long Itchington Canons Ashby ride, which is fairly lacking in good bridges.

(http://www.ductilebiscuit.net/gallery_albums/longitch2013/Photo0092.sized.jpg)

Notable mainly for being surprisingly steep on the road side, and surprisingly deep on the canal.

Telford wanted to build an iron bridge, but the City Council considered only stone suitable for a gateway to the city. It wasn't opened till 3 years after it was completed, as the middle of the span sank. But it settled safely and was used till about 1970.

Bridge at Newbridge, on the edge of Bath.

Fairly strange or a fair stranger? Will the trip bridge some differences? And how are you going to pay for the tickets - will you need a bridging loan?

I must have walked past (and indeed over) this one so many times.  Indeed, now Bournbrook Road has been culverted, I think it qualifies as our local bridge:

It's nothing special, but the Bourn Brook is looking particularly lovely at this time of year.

The very same. What these photos demonstrate is my inability to focus properly on a Nikon F2 with a ground glass screen only. Using an old Nikkor 80-200 f4.5 pretty much wide open.

Yes you can. That white rail and black overhang on the second picture shows where the footbridge has been added to the rail viaduct. I'm not sure about using it for a group ride though as the route down to it (and the station) is a narrow gravel path with fencing on either side.

Longtown Bridge, which I've crossed many times, but never photographed before:

Two of Blacklyne Bridge, one from upstream and one from downstream, as you can see the different types of stone used (or, possibly, the differing effects of weather):

Cumbria has good bridges. For a touch of non-Cumbrian variety, here are the old and new bridges over the Tyne at Haydon Bridge:

I feel it's a shame he didn't include the old railway bridge, which I thought had the most character, although they all have interesting stories.

As you can see (if you have been following the story), the stream is now pretty much back where it should be though about a foot or so higher than I would like. The rest of the path needs infill but is now ready for an engineer to look at it.

This could also go in forumite spotting, or I saw this and thought of you...

Newton Cap Viaduct, the former railway viaduct between Bishop Auckland and Durham:

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7365/9129700504_3f7f7e7f72_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/30024450@N04/9129700504/)

It has since been converted to carry the A689 out of Bishop. And to think the council wanted to knock it down to build a whole new structure; only a local campaign saved it.

The old (14th century) bridge was clearly not up to A-road traffic, though it is a very fine bridge in itself:

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7293/9129684322_1a5a823c4d_z.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/30024450@N04/9129684322/)

It was built by Bishop Skirlaw, then Bishop of Durham, though it's been extensively renovated since then. I still prefer crossing at the old bridge, for the extra hills, the thrill of visiting Toronto (http://streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=420155&y=530540&z=120&sv=420155,530540&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=672&ax=420155&ay=530540&lm=0), and, of course, for the views of the viaduct:

Loafer, it will probably be due to the mixture of https / http content.

You are probably viewing the forum as an https: page.
The embedded photo links are to plain old http: images.

Your browser is probably configured not to allow 'mixed' content.
If you tell us what browser you are using, someone can probably tell you how to enable mixed content.

Tools
Internet Options
Security tab
Custom level
Set Display Mixed Content to Enable

I don't know if it's exactly the same for IE10.

Glad you got it working.

Worth pointing out:
Browser choice is not related to your ISP.
IE10 is not 'part' of BT Internet.

It's just that if you run the setup CDs that many ISPs provide, they mess about with your browsers.
Usually only to make them display nonsense like 'IE10 provided by This_ISP!'.

The correct thing to do with ISP setup CDs is to toss them in the bin.
They add absolutely nothing to your computer that you want or need.
Shred them first, with a cross-cut shredder, so no unfortunate bin-scrounger has to endure such nonsense.

Bah, Humber!

My researches have uncovered the fact that it's the longest single span bridge that you can cycle over, and that the water underneath it might have fallen as far apart as Birmingham and Scotch Corner.

The Rive Ure causes confusion, as it runs through Wensleydale, which was once known as Yoredale. Catchment maps are very useful in anticipating climbing and wind direction on big rides. On LEL we entered the Trent catchment at Market Rasen, so there would be climbing on both sides. The opposite of bridges are watersheds, and it pays to know where they are.

Bridge carrying NV-305 (the road used for the racing outside Battle Mountain) over the Reese River which, thanks to yesterday's rain, actually has some water in it.  What you can't see is that the truck has a second trailer hanging off the first - they are BIG.

Top of the bridge.  We zip-tie those boards to the armco to stop a crashing bike from going underneath the rail.  Edit: They proved their worth this evening when the Glowworm tandem hit them after a 62 mph run in very windy conditions.

As promised a couple of bridges from this morning.  Sorry about the murkiness; it was crystal clear when I got up but by the time I was breakfasted, packed and ready to move it had turned foggy / cloudy.  Probably the latter as it's just over 6,000 feet up.

Trona Bridge (footbridge), connecting Expedition island and the south side of the Green River, Green River, Wyoming

Expedition Island is so-called as it was the departure point of John Wesley Powell's descent of the Colorado River.  AIUI this bit was called the Colorado until 1921, while the upper reaches of the present-day Colorado in utah and, er, Colorado was the Grand River.

Also it's brown, not green.

I think tht's the same one as this

So there I was, making my way down the Belgian coast somewhere near Zeebrugge, when I noticed that the road (including cyclepath) had reared up ahead of me.
(http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h323/nocensure/20110713_1338.jpg)
Nothing appeared to be happening, so I did a U-turn and found another crossing, then found the other sided of the bridge, and the reason it was open.

Dunbar Bridge across the Kanawha River, Dunbar, West Virginia.

There's some potentially useful Bridge action to be had up the road in Charleston, but rush hour traffic may mitigate against it :(

It turned out that not only rush-hour traffic, but also torrential rain and a lack of anywhere to park within range, mitigated against a bridge-spotting foray in Charleston this morning.  Here instead are some XXX-rated bridges from the sunny end of Maryland:

(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3814/9826014534_2616536c24_c.jpg)
Chesapeake Bay Bridge, between Annapolis and Kent Island, MD.  This is the Kent Island end; the Annapolis end is about five miles away.  I tried to get a better view from further south but there doesn't appear to be any access to the waterside except by walking through someone's garden chiz.

(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3692/9826016284_08d4d9ebeb_c.jpg)
Kent Narrows Bridge, carrying US-50 between Kent Island and the Delmarva Peninsula, MD.  This is the Delmarva end as seen from the third floor of my hotel.

(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3766/9826044215_51d8031d7d_c.jpg)
Waterman's Memorial Bridge, with the lifting section Doing Stuffs.  Nothing came through, so maybe they were just testing it.  Runs parallel to the Kent Narrows Bridge, part of which is at the top of the picture.

(http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2882/9826045125_6fbc4442d2_c.jpg)
Both of the above together.  The white thing at the bottom left is the bonnet of a Ford E-series van which, praise be, is to be replaced next year by the Transit :thumbsup:

No bikes, alas, and not just because the tunnels are only one lane in each direction.

Its called "Shaky Bridge", and its near Alexandra in NZ, and yes it does live up to its name.  Mrs W got a brave person award for getting across it, as she hates wobbly bridges.  in contrast, being a git, I love wobbly or jiggly bridges.  Once made a total arse of myself on Coneel Ferry bridge 'cos a mate insisted a person could get it to jiggle up and down.  It was being staffed by police at the time, as the traffic lights had busted.  They were very indulgent, and I went away unjiggled, cursing my mate...

I couldn't be arsed with all that early morning getting-to-Solihull business[1] and stayed in bed with a book, going out to see the horses (about 7 in total, plus a tractor that tried to muck-spreader me and therefore counts as an honorary horse) in the afternoon.  Typically, a horse at the bottom of one of the roller-coaster-able hills was extremely twitchy, and necessitated stop and look like a human tactics.  As they passed, the rider explained that she'd been scared by the cows in the previous field.  Ludicrous animals.


[1] Great way to be knackered before the ride's started, plus I'll be doing the more civilised late morning getting to Northfield business tomorrow, for a seekrit cyclebirmingham FriendFace ride.

Narrowest road bridge ever.  I can confirm that it is, in fact, a VW Polo wide plus two very tiny bits.

Narrow bridge's shy and retiring sibling, 100 yards downstream.

I was TEC for a lot of today's Tunnel Ride (https://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=75508.150). Shall we say the pace lent itself to me loitering a bit and taking a few photos of Brum's bridges by night...


I can't remember what he called it (Roving Bridge?), but Crumbling Nick sounded very glad to (finally) reach this one:

Not much of a bridge, but very useful for getting to to the croquet lawn.

It's a bridge. A bit bouncy, and held together with scaffolding poles. But still more appetising than the alternative:

Short flat concrete structure carrying the rural road over a brook, but appears significant enough locally to warrant a local restaurant to be named after it.  Note the interesting picture of a bridge on the sign.  Perhaps the villagers were sold a bigger concept than they received.

I've been regularly cycling within a few hundred metres of this little beauty on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal, completely unaware of its existence:

(http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5532/12574712443_6c4e87aa45.jpg)

Quote
On the outskirts of Shirley the brick-built Major's Green Aqueduct carries the canal 10m above Aqueduct Road and the River Cole.

270 yards (250 m) further south is the electrically operated Shirley Draw Bridge which carries Drawbridge Road over the canal. It is normally closed and can be opened using a British Waterways key.[source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stratford-upon-Avon_Canal)]

If you had to guess one forumite who would just happen to have a British Waterways key about their person, who would it be?

It is now superceded by this one, same architect as the "pont de Normandie" :

(http://photos.creafrance.org/pois/2774_pont-du-morbihan_la-roche-bernard.jpg)

And near Nantes is the pont de Cheviré, not quite as big as pont de St Nazaire but more elegant in my view.

Personnaly, I don't like the proportions of the pont de St Nazaire, it doesn't look very efficient to me, I might be wrong as I've never designed something spanning more than 50m!

But, certainly for me, that lack elegance as you describe it, gives a kind of foreboding (http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6075/6092558663_8f03b68155_b.jpg) quality as you approach, especially when you know you're just about to cross it by bike. I was lucky, the weather was kind and it was early Saturday morning, but even with those conditions I found it very challenging, particularly with the cycle lane being very narrow.

A rather spiffing SEEKRIT bridge that you can only see if you go for a bike ride in winter and happen to peer at the undergrowth at the right moment.  Nikki and I discovered it by accident last week, but didn't stop to take a photo as we'd just overtaken a pair of horses.

I think we've had it before, but here it is again, the Newport Vertical Lift Bridge in Middlesbrough:

You can see a bit of the lifting mechanism at the left. It hasn't been raised since 1990 (caveat Wikipedia) - I'm sure I was there for it, and that seems about the right timescale.

I don't often actually _take_ bridge photies myself... but the EldestCub just emailed me this one that he took at the wedding party we went to yesterday.  Our taxi driver had to call to get the electric gates to the estate to open and then drive us accross the grounds and over the bridge in question when delivering us to the venue.  It was particularly resplendent on the return journey in the dark.

That is the lake from which Mr Darcy famously emerges.  I told our hosts that I was really _most_ disappointed that they didn't plan to recreate the moment :D

(apologies for the non-bridge portions of the images which will appear)

Portland, Oregon in the US of A has a number of iconic bridges across the Willamette River.  Portland is also well-known as a cycling city, and there's a local organized ride which takes riders over all of them which bikes are allowed on.

But, the Steel Bridge is unique.  A vertical lift bridge with two levels.  The lower level can be raised independently of the upper, or both can go up together.

In our younger and foolisher days, the challenge in the climbing club was to do a bridge traverse around the slab. Basically go right the way round it unaided. Like a table traverse, just wetter if it goes wrong.

Our local bridge has been damaged again:

(http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/resources/images/2914006.jpg?type=articleLandscape)

There will be a long diversion to get to the main road now. Either about 5 miles or 10 miles depending on the weather (the road on the shortest diversion floods if it rains a lot on the moors).

Ketton Bridge. It's now obsolete, as the river was re-routed to shift the effluent from Fishburn Coke Works down to the Tees and away as quickly as possible. Apologies for the shite photo:

The strange colour on the side of that bridge is thousands of locks. People lock a lock to the bridge, then throw the keys in the river.

A little known fact - the jack up platform was invented to install the legs for that bridge across the entrance to Montrose basin, and then used to much greater effect in building it's big brother a few miles further up the Tay.

I think that the Montrose one is on the South Esk. I'm assuming by the other bridge you mean this one? :)

The railway bridges round there are really handsome. I particularly like the road swooping beneath Wansbeck Viaduct.

Here are a couple from North Yorkshire, though. Firstly, Ingleton Viaduct:

Seeing as Team YACF were out of time on leaving the second control on today's Essex Bridge 100 (due to a combination of lack of fitness, headwind and tactical faff), we decided to waste a bit more time for the sake of this photo:

Because a rope swing over a muddy bog of doom makes a good bridge even better.   :thumbsup:

(The route got flatter and the headwind failed to turn around to compensate for the change in direction of the route, so we made up loads of time on the final leg.)

The third one is where you leave the A707 between Caddenfoot and Peel. There were definitely lots of nice bridges, more than we had time to take photos of even :)

Here's another one near Lyne Station

Boring railway bridge on Mitcham Lane.  Bit annoying, as the road dips under it, so there's a bit of a grunt either way.  Anyway, it's colourful:

Very little smugness.
Pretty much NO whining and complaining.
No tech at all - other than that involved in Bridges or used in pictures taking thereof.
Not that many smilies.

I take loads of bridge photos for Crinkly and always forget to post them, but this one I remembered!

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/10599204_10152199241166786_8414012902669036445_n.jpg?oh=95e8b2c71655519fc867ca57392da55f&oe=5475A93B&__gda__=1415995230_27d33245628a34ded8aa6fe60e65518f)

It is a standard wide-ish cyclist and pedestrian bridge over the Niers river but for some reason it has all this massively complicated beam stuff going on overhead. My German companion said that is standard German over-engineering. I am sure it was unnecessary.

We improved the bridge by giving it a matching set of Drängelgitter (annoying two-part gates) as the far side had them. Drängelgitter are a real pain for trikers, tandems, people with trailers or anyone else really, but they keep getting put onto cycle routes in Kreis Viersen.

I think the electrons are probably just old rather than foreign - according to this article on the last refurbishment (http://www.steelconstruction.org/index.php?option=com_documents&task=downloadDocument&doc=62203&file=73563), they're still using the original 1906 motor. The electrical supply to the gondola is from the 6 wires visible in the photo via short pantographs (three facing in each direction).

I-8, Penitentiary Avenue and railroad bridges, Yuma, AZ.

AFAICT the I-8 bridge is the last one across the Mighty Colorado this side of the Mexican border, and I'm not about to cross into Mexico to look over there either.  There's another dam further downstream which is presumably why the Mexican section of the Mighty Colorado rarely has much water.  In it.

Not sure what's on top of these, which were taken from the same spot on CA-190 in the southern Sierra Nevada.  Some kind of (disused) narrow-gauge railway would be my best guess, but I'll be blowed if I can find which one.

ahh, the joys of vicarious armchair touring! Looks like you found the Springville Flume (http://goo.gl/maps/kaMEm), supplying water to Springville since 1908 (http://www.recorderonline.com/flume-getting-needed-repairs/article_484d04ed-fa42-51e3-be38-405bafd1c665.html?mode=jqm)

Double-barrelled culvert near the start of the full Battle Mountain sprint course, NV-305

The nearest thing to a bridge you'll find within five miles, and we did that bridge to DETH last year.  There is a bridge over the Humboldt River in the middle of town, and Maria in reception says there's even some water in the said river, so I suppose I should go and have a look some time.  But not today coz I'm falling asleep and it's only 15:20 chiz.

The bridge over the Torne at Karesuando. I think it's the most northerly road bridge in Sweden (ignoring that half of it is in Finland). There's a sign outside the town to a dirt road which is Sweden's most northerly public road, but that's a dead end.

Quote
At the beginning of WW2 the original bridge was blown up. When our country was liberated, the English replaced it with a military bridge designed by D C Bailey (Bailey-brug in dutch), which still shows its solidity every day.

Been a bit light on bridges recently coz apart from motorways and dry river beds there aten't been much requiring bridging.  I crossed the Mighty Colorado again this afternoon but we've already had that bridge (Glen Canyon, Page, AZ).

There were probably some bridges in Carlsbad but when I left this morning it had been pissing down for fourteen hours straight so I was disinclined to look for them.  Carlsbad has a "Canal Street" and therefore, presumably, a canal, but if it's what I think it is, then it's like once of the less salubrious bits of the BCN, only without any boats.  It wasn't until it dried out in Texas that bridges could be snapped:

Today we visited the bridge across the Rio Grande gorge near Taos NM:

(https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2943/15159052238_bbcc6e763a_o.jpg)
Something was going on when I arrived; the fire department and several different species of rozzers were on-site.  Doesn't look much from this angle, but...

...eventually $INCIDENT was cleared and I could get across to the parking area on the west side, from where it looks like this:

I bin meaning to take a look at this bridge for ages and finally got the chance today:

(https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2946/15168646808_12a6e3b3c1_o.jpg)

It's in better nick than the Dewey Bridge bagged in Utah what feels like eons ago, but doesn't look terribly special from this angle.

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3878/15354900422_912286b3a9_o.jpg)

But from this angle it's a bit more dramatic.  'tis the Royal Gorge Bridge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Gorge_Bridge) and is either 955 feet (Wikinaccurate) or 1053 feet (the operator's web site) above the Arkansas River.  Built in 1929; was the highest bridge in the wurrrrld until surpassed by those Heathen Chi-Knees in 2001.  Highest bridge in USAnia still - the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge down at the Hoover Dam is second, Glen Canyon Bridge is sixth, yesterday's Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is seventh and Navajo Bridge is at number nine, so I've got some good bridges this year ;D

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3856/15168693097_97b875416d_o.jpg)

This is what's at the bottom of the gorge - Arkansas River and scenic railroad.

If you are at all scared of heights it is a deeply Scary Thing.  I know it's been there for eighty-five years and that if you can drive a three tonne pickup over it then even the mass of Fatpot Larrington is not going to cause it to fold up like a house of cards, but it makes unsettling noises, you can feel it moving even in the gentle winds of this afternoon and the bridge deck appears to be made of second-hand railway sleepers.  And you can see straight down through the gaps between them :sick:

All in all, if I'm going to cross the Arkansas River, I prefer something like this:

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3921/15352028731_328ae2cfda_o.jpg)

Bridge carrying a park road across the said Arkansas River just downstream of Pueblo Dam.  See how it can support a three tonne pickup without wobbling :-\

The latter was really swaying in yesterday's strong breeze - I felt seasick crossing it. In today's winds, it'd probably have been a little worse.

The (This'll stun you) HaHa bridge from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

This is a massive construction taking place between Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau, a series of bridges and tunnels which are under construction.  Seen while landing at Hong Kong airport in a typhoon.  Pretty hairy landing, on the same day the flight from Amsterdam was shot down over Ukraine.

Humber bridge.
From the FNRttC earlier this year
I think CL is well overdue a pic, given the unmitigated hospitality she bestowed upon me when I did the ride a year earlier.... and this year...
For anyone who cares ... that's the south stanchion, on the up river side, looking upwards (I was on my back on the floor, taking the pic) and east (hence the highlights from the rising sun to the base of the cables in the image) make sense?

Not a lot of bridginess today, I'm afraid.  That might be summat to do with only getting about 5 hours of useable light, mind.  This one makes up for it in quality though, I feel - the northernmost bridge in the whole entire world.

Dean,

It's hard to believe the contradiction between Paradise Fields (the name) and the ironworks which stood there in Witton Park.  My great grandfather moved there to work as a puddler and my great-aunts (one of whom I called Grandma because she adopted my Dad) were born there in King Street.  I never found this out until decades after the only time I visited Witton Park.  Maybe we could factor it into a ride?!

A couple of Boxing Day bridges.

Greta Bridge (it's the bridge over the Greta at Greta Bridge - they get their use out of their names round there):

Ruthie and I planned to cycle from Darlington to Durham today, but the cold blattery rain and the NW headwind soaked all our enthusiasm away. Instead we went for a walk. I particularly wanted to find a bridge I'd seen on Google Earth, the giveaway had been the shadow of the arches on the River Wear. A bit of research and we found it was Belmont Railway Viaduct. Along the way we saw some other bridges and Ruthie tells me that every bridge counts. Have these been posted here before?

That was a really nice surprise, that walk, and I was so pleased to be able to do six miles on my poorly foot!  I almost dare to think it might get better!  My chest was well behaved too, hurray.

We didn't get rained on and that viaduct is a thing of loveliness.

Thanks G.

It is. The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, usually Known as La'l Ratty. I decided to race it to the next station, but it wasn't much of a race, the train is rather slow.

And Ketton Bridge, which used to bridge the Skerne, but the course changed, and now it crosses nothing:

A few within walking distance of home, mostly the Basingstoke Canal (which, as everyone knows, does not go to or from Basingstoke, although Basingstoke does have a canal heritage footpath). Mostly taken this morning.

A road bridge over the mile-long abandoned bit of the canal between the collapsed tunnel near Greywell and where it peters out before getting near Basingstoke.

And here, if I may, are both bridge-like ends of the collapsed tunnel

I am told that the Basingrad CanalTrust weren't allowed even to try reopening the Greywell tunnel as it's home to a Myriad of bats.

Correct. Besides, it would be a huge effort for about an extra mile of dead-end canal.
