Bridge (detail) over the River Dove, near Burton-on-Trent
Bridge (detail) over the River Dove, near Burton-on-Trent
This fine stone road bridge used to carry the A38 road before the recent dual carriageway upgrades round Burton were constructed in 1967/8. Because the river was so low I was able to go right down onto the part of the bed which is submerged to varying degrees whenever heavy rain has fallen.

The arch shown is on the right in this picture showing the river in a very state. LinkExternal link
