taken 10 years ago, near to Handbridge, Cheshire, Great Britain

The Salmon Steps at Chester's Weir
The Salmon Steps at Chester's Weir
The distinctive shallow steps, at the far end of Chester's famous weir, allow the returning salmon to swim easily up to the higher level. To the right of the steps is a disused millrace, which in 1882 used to power a 'Tobacco and Snuff Manufactory'. The pink buildings behind are known as the Salmon Leap flats.
