Great Britain: North Parade Bridge (2)

My last photo of Bath is a view of the approach onto the North Parade Bridge over the River Avon. This is a handsome single span stone masonry arch bridge The original bridge was built in 1836 of cast iron with stone abutments. It was rebuilt in 1936 completely in stone.

The Tall Bridge Guy likes it when I travel to new and exotic places to photograph bridges. Today I'm flying to Chile (as part of the PEER, EERI, FHWA Investigation Team) to collect data on the performance of bridges during the February 27, 2010 Maule, Chile Earthquake.

Hopefully, I'll have time to send a quick blog from the field every day.
