NZ7107 : The ford by Duck Bridge

taken 10 years ago, near to Ainthorpe, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

The ford by Duck Bridge
The ford by Duck Bridge, taken 10 years ago
This was installed within the last ten years, previously the bridge was open to traffic, although so narrow that in practice only cars could use it.

The Esk is prone to sudden changes in level - at this point the flow also seems rather swift, this led to an unfortunate fatality here when a car was swept downstream.
Since then a heavy rail has been installed on the downstream side which would hopefully stop a vehicle in any 'borderline' fording incident.

When the River is at more normal levels the water runs through large pipes.
