Stockport

Underbank..looking towards "Robbies" Brewery (wipes away nostalgic tear)

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)

That last photo looks like it may have a nice little nook on the left to get some shelter.

The newest crossing of the Derwent:




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!

Which one there are four river Derwents in England ?
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

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.

Sorry, I labelled them the wrong way round.  It's muggins and Deno rather than Deano and muggins.
