A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

GRANGE IN BORROWDALE 1/7

Grange, often called Grange in Borrowdale, is a village in Borrowdale in the English Lake District. It lies just off the main road to the south of Derwentwater and 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Keswick. The village is overlooked by Grange Fell and Castle Crag, which flank either side of the narrow section of Borrowdale in which it sits. Its origins date back to medieval times and the double-arched bridge that links the village to the main road across the River Derwent was built in 1675.

I am not much at math, Brian, so have to admit I can count only 1 arch here.
Brian Walbey: There is another smaller arch just out of picture on the right.

You had me fooled on this one, Brian. Although I've walked and driven over it, I didn't recognise it from this angle. I have seen this bank almost completely under water, though, now I know the location. I like the light here.
Brian Walbey: No doubt you will recognise the other pictures in this series though Alan. I can imagine this little river running quite high during the winter.
The bridge arch and the curve of the hill work so well here.

A much photographed little bridge that I never tire of seeing.
Brian Walbey: Couldn't avoid taking a photo of it, it is so attractive.
very rural

The bridge is very beautiful and it is still used?
Brian Walbey: It is the only way in and out of the village from the east side Mary.
You've captured this very well Brian, it's lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sally.
Beautifully shot from this angle, Brian. I imagine there have been a lot of repairs done over the years to a bridge of that age.
Brian Walbey: I can imagine a bridge like this needs a lot of looking after, Alan has seen it with the river lapping the top of the bank.

This is a fine, solid, weatherbeaten bridge used by a lot of miners and other people in the Lakes for ages. I remember the River Derwent passing by Wordsworth's garden in Cockermouth, it can be dangerous in some times by overflooding the area.
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just a fine bridge Philine. We crossed the river in Cockermouth, and indeed, Cockermouth was flooded a couple of years ago.
That's a beautifully crafted bridge and fine photo, Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
A fine and elegant bridge.
This bridge is a jewel Brian!
Brian Walbey: Isn't it lovely.
A fine example of a bridge when they didn't know the maths smile
Brian Walbey: Indeed Tom, they were very clever in the old days.

Lovely image. There is a bridge in Tasmania that looks just like this.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps built by early settlers from the U.K.
