The Humber Bridge from Paull
The Humber Bridge from Paull
Taken with a telephoto lens, the bridge is 8.9 miles (14.3Km) away at this point! The south tower is on the left and in the River Humber itself, whereas the north tower is situated on dry land at Hessle Foreshore. The lead up span on the south side is longer than its equivalent north one. To compensate for this, the north lead up cables have more strands than their southern counterparts as their angle is steeper (do you remember your 'triangle of forces' from O-Level Physics!?).
