I would love to know when this lovely bridge was built,and how many feet must have walked over it..thank you Maurice,it's a very nice serene shot.

Well Maureen this may give you a clue to the date of the bridge. The Leeds and Liverpool canal was under construction in the 1700s and completed in 1816, so the bridge could be around that year or a little after. How many people have walked over it...Millions!
