Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is Ovington Bridge, which I was determined to photograph because of its unusual curving nature.

Please click on Ovington Bridge to see the photograph much bigger and clearer.

If you look carefully you will be able to see how it has a draining slot similar to those seen on castles and there is evidence that its arches have been altered.

I love to research new places and on researching this bridge I found that it was built in 1841 and was listed in 1967. (A 'listed building' is a building, object or structure that has been judged to be of national importance in terms of architectural or historic interest and included on a special register, called the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.)

As an important link into the small rural village of Ovington, the bridge has a huge role in the welfare of the village. During the huge downpours of 2012, the bridge partially collapsed, dissecting the village and causing huge problems. If you click on this link there is a video report on how the village was affected.

I was inspired to post this photograph because we have just suffered torrential downpours for 24 hours and my garden is a little boggy though not collapsed!

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
