And then it was gone, , ,
This is all that remains of Little Braithwaite Bridge after the floods in November 2009. The bit I'm standing on at the moment is new, and was put in place to force the beck to take its correct course. After building something as substantial as this, it begs the question "do they actually intend to replace the bridge at all".
Perhaps I shouldn't have, but I decided to cross the beck instead of doubling back along the road. Obviously it's up to the individual where they choose to walk, but I wouldn't recommend crossing the beck. Getting from here down to the water's edge was much trickier than it looks, and had the water been much deeper I'd have ended up having a much wetter time of it.
