Fine looking bridge. I'm surprised it is private.
Interesting view of 2 gates so close to each other.
Can't believe the close proximity of the two gates! Interesting combination for a bridge that may once have had public access?
A private bridge seems quite unusual!
I'd walk over just to see what might happen.
It's a beauty.
I've never known this to have a public right of way Gerald.. before the houses were built it was just field for Foxholes and Cloughfold Farms... There is a public footpath that goes under the old railway towards Cloughfold, and also another public right of way was past Thistlefields over the Godley To Apethorn Junction..onto Cheethamfold
how greedy! :)
So, say a person wanted to get across, are they "SOL", so to speak, or do they have to pay an ugly troll somewhere? *wink*
You'll have to use one of the alternative routes as mentioned in the linked post on Hyde DP Xtra.
Looks like it might be a nice place on the other side ... if only you could get there.
I did the round trip in less than an hour - see the whole Geotrip.
2 gates---they're quite serious about this bridge being private.:p
Went to the other photo...it really is pretty o the other side. genie
