ST5872 : Gaol Ferry ramp

taken 3 years ago, near to Bristol, Great Britain

Gaol Ferry ramp
Gaol Ferry ramp
Steep incline where the access track to the old ferry used to be before the nearby iron bridge (just visible) was constructed across the New Cut (itself completed in 1809). The land on this side of the Cut is artificially high because the vast amount of spoil (from the excavation of the new waterway) was deposited predominantly on the southern bank.
