I yam tempted to post my 296 photos of Lancaster canal bridges now. But I won't. :-)

If you'd done it properly (as I would have expected from you :wink:) I thought that you would have 374 photos; one from each side :?
fausto.


Well .... I can't resist putting up a few. Canal bridges of character, on that Lancaster canal.

Nice pics Cudgel; thanks for showing.
Seems you might have a calm side somewhere :wink:

Had a lovely walk along the Monmouth & Brecon last week with my grandkids and recently pootled along both the Shroppie and the Monty.

fausto.

40miles today 28C temp with quite a bit of off road climbing included,3.5l of liquid consumed to help stop me melting :shock:
But the big plus was that I didn't have one close pass or intimidation from any motorist :) which is a rarity IME.
