Winning Photo March

1 Apr 2017 | Club News

Two fantastic photos of bridges were submitted this month. We could not decide between the two so they both feature for March.


The railway bridge photo was taken on the disused railway track bed, section Cotherstone to Romaldkirk. The line was a mineral line but did carry a few passengers and ran from Barnard Castle to Middleton in Teesdale. It closed in the 60’s as part of the Beaching cuts. We were fortunate in Co. Durham the local County Council converted many of the closed lines into footpaths and latterly into part on the national cycle routes.

The other photo is of an intriguing stone bridge which is near Betws, Ammanford, in Carmarthenshire. We actually walked over it, on our walk last Sunday.
Photo taken by Gail Allen who had to clamber over some tricky terrain to be able to take it.
