Horkstow Bridge over the river Ancholme between Brigg and humber.

Horkstow Bridge is one of the earliest surviving suspension bridges in the country. It is unusual small suspension dating back to 1835-6. The bridge has two elegant classical style arched towers made of rusticated stone. The wooden plank decking is suspended by double wrought iron chains. The decking is of a convex shape and moves about when crossing in a car.
Designed by Sir John Rennie the second.

Excellent shot! The angle of the bridge, that lush green grass & blue cloudy sky with the birds as an extra bonus are all just perfect! And thanks for the info interesting wee read. Cool
