Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 8th November, 2015)
Photo: Rachel Shallcross (Nikon D5000)
Rachel, it's the Navigation bridge, as everybody from around there know it as. You have done well with that pic, i have been under there many many times but never seen it like that.
This one is a bit different than the run off the mill ones.
Looks like the handrails had a fresh coat of paint, hope the next job is resurfacing the tow path.
Certainly different, a good photo Rachel.
All canal bridges have a number. it is a valuable navigation aid, so do not think you have made a mistake Rachel. We have a (legal) Oxford canal bridge number as our house number.
I think that is a brilliant photo,
Well done Rachel !
Great composition, Rachel.
Well done you...!!!
Brilliant photo Rachel..you have an artistic eye.
Lovely, what you see is what you get 10/10.
Unusual viewpoint Janice. It`s actually in Shevington - the boundary is the river Douglas.
Sorry Rachel - another senior moment!
Another senior comment it's Gathhurst.
I think you'll find that there's no such a place as GatHHurst Garry, i presume you are referring to Gathurst. The river Douglas marks the southern boundary of Shevington and therefore, the canal bridge, like Ernest stated, is in Shevington.
Maggie, we know all bridges are numbered and that this one is 46, no one is saying that Rachel has made a mistake, i was only telling her what the locals call it, this bridge has been known locally for the last 75 years that i know of, as The Navigation bridge, named after the pub that stood alongside it, which, for the last few years has been an Indian restaurant as Rachel called it, The Baby Elephant, but, will ALWAYS be known as The Navigation bridge, to people who know it and live in the area.
Jonuo It's Gathurst and it's on the Map.
Nice shot. Cleverly thought out.
Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments
Garry, yes, Gathurst WILL be on the map. Look on British History Online and you will see that Gathurst is a PART of Shevington, so, although you you think the bridge is in Gathurst it is technically in Shevington.
Ernest , Jonno , Garry, please help me on this. Ernest says the boundary line , I,m talking about Gathurst and Shevvy , is the River Douglas, is this correct?
Kas,yes it is.
No it's not Kas.
That's clear then?
