Newbridge

Recommended Posts

The third and furthest downstream of the three 13th century bridges across the Thames, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newbridge%2C_River_Thames, the only one of the three that has not been rebuilt. Also the point at which the River Windrush joins the Thames.

From the Thames path just upstream.

Thanks Denis & Ryewolf, number 1 was also my favourite.

Yes - number one is definitely the best shot.

The sign in the last one seems very out of place.  I can read the "No" but nothing else.  "No Swimming"?  "No Fishing"?  "No Photography"?

It's a bit faded, but it says something along the lines of "No electric boats or canoes on the Windrush"; the "Rose Revived" also hires boats, but they are  restricted to the Thames. I did try cloning it out but it's a bit too big for my editing skills:-(

I like number 1 best as well - a very nice composition.
