Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Yesterday, For the first time in weeks, we had a dry day so I ventured to Wycoller, a local country park, where I walked and took a few photographs.

Please click on The Packhorse Bridge to see the photograph in larger format. It is well worth the effort.

You may have seen this pack horse bridge before, for it is one of my favourite features, but every time it is photographed, it looks just a little different, maybe because of the season, maybe the light, maybe the composition; you know how things change!

The packhorse bridge is a two arched bridge of fascinating construction. It is frequently said to be a thirteenth century erection but some attribute it to be fifteenth century.

The bridge is not falling over as its precarious appearance suggests, but has withstood constant use and powerful floods over the centuries.

You can see from the amount of moss and lichen that the weather has been very wet recently.

I will post a second photograph, showing the view from the opposite side, including the cobbled path which leads from the bridge.

Thanks for your interest, Bev :-)
