Lancaster - the River Lune snakes through the city
Lancaster - the River Lune snakes through the city, taken 5 years ago
A view across Lancaster from the Ashton Memorial high up on Williams Park. The River Lune can be seen mid-picture with two notable bridges. The V-shaped support for the cable stays, and the gently arching deck of the new River Lune Millennium Bridge LinkExternal link can be seen just above the tree top. Slightly further away can be seen the supports and gantries associated with the Carlisle Bridge which carries the railway over the river. I have used this latter bridge as the subject location for this photograph.
