Comment by Roy on 9th December 2013 at 00:01
I think it might be bridge 57 Harry, good photo which ever bridge it is.


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh . on 9th December 2013 at 00:06
Harry , this I realy very good , almost like something you would've seen on a postcard .


Comment by Ken R on 9th December 2013 at 00:19
Lovely shot, perfect reflection.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 9th December 2013 at 02:25
Harry it is beautiful....one for the album....thank you ...cheers!!!


Comment by Chuck Turner on 9th December 2013 at 02:50
Gorgeous photo Mr. Cunliffe. What sort of traffic does this 200 year-old bridge convey ? Also what does the number 57 signify ?


Comment by Fred Cunliffe on 9th December 2013 at 05:14
It says 57 on the bridge,beautiful photo.


Comment by Bren on 9th December 2013 at 06:45
Lovely shot Harry...... looks like bridge 57.


Comment by kath on 9th December 2013 at 06:53
lovely reflections! did you stand in the water to take this harry?


Comment by Mick on 9th December 2013 at 07:34
Now thats a good photo

I could live with that on my wall.


Comment by Harry C. on 9th December 2013 at 08:30
It is Bridge 57 I realised as soon as I sent the photo I pressed 6 and not 7, thanks spotters.


Comment by john on 9th December 2013 at 08:35
Nice one harry, nice shot.


Comment by Harry C. on 9th December 2013 at 09:02
Sorry Chuck, I don't know apart from the fact that the old bridges seem to have a number. This bridge leads from Cale Lane to the industrial estate an carries a lot of heavy wagons.
Kath, I placed my camera on the lock gate about 25 yards away. See P.A.DAY 27/7/2008


Comment by Maureen on 9th December 2013 at 10:41
Harry,that's a beautiful shot..it truly is.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 9th December 2013 at 12:28
That's a cracker, I'd be well chuffed if I'd taken that. I love the hint of mist at the top - very atmospheric.


Comment by Janice on 9th December 2013 at 15:26
Wonderful shot Harry. Great Reflection.


Comment by HarryC. on 9th December 2013 at 15:53
Thanks Dave, and everyone, Dave can you explain why photos reproduced on photo a day loose some sharpness?


Comment by Emily Cunliffe on 9th December 2013 at 18:18
Daisy says it's pretty, William says it's symmetrical and I say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!


Comment by Garry on 9th December 2013 at 18:48
Well done it's a belter, no tricks with this one, a genuine shot.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 9th December 2013 at 20:36
It depends what you send in Harry. I always use photos at exactly the size they display here - 730px wide. I sharpen them if needed after I've resized them to 730px wide.


Comment by Gray Taylor on 9th December 2013 at 21:04
Bridge No 1 is in Liverpool and bridge 225 is in Leeds. British Waterways maintain number plates on almost all of the bridges on the
network which they manage for maintenance and navigation purposes. Many walking (and cycling) publications make reference to these numbers when describing routes (as indeed do navigational
texts for boaters).


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 9th December 2013 at 21:16
Beautiful Harry.


Comment by John Morris on 9th December 2013 at 21:26
Great shot, just about perfect!


Comment by Berni on 9th December 2013 at 21:36
Beautiful shot


Comment by Pepsi on 9th December 2013 at 23:01
Looks like Cale Lane bridge but I could be wrong either way its a great shot.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 10th December 2013 at 06:04
I would say Cale Lane, and looking through the arch bridge is Top Lock.
Good photo Harry.


Comment by Harry C. on 10th December 2013 at 08:45
Thanks for your comments all.
thanks for the info Dave.
Pepsi and Colin, it is Cale Lane bridge but the lock that you can see through the arch is the one by the Kirkless Hall Inn, Top Lock is the next one up. The bridge was built in 1816


Comment by David on 16th December 2013 at 17:21
Stunning!
