taken 9 years ago, near to Great Haywood, Staffordshire, Great Britain

The Essex Bridge at Shugborough, Staffordshire
The Essex Bridge at Shugborough, Staffordshire
The image shows four of the remaining fourteen arches of this, the longest surviving pack horse bridge in Britain, probably built in the seventeenth century to replace a wooden 1550 structure across the River Trent below its confluence with the River Sow east of Stafford. Originally it had forty spans.

From the left, through the second visible complete arch, is a diverted part of the River Sow re-entering from Shugborough Park. Through the third arch is the River Sow proper, joining the River Trent, whose waters approach from the right through the fourth arch.
