On the Flintshire Bridge over the River Dee
On the Flintshire Bridge over the River Dee
One of those wonderfully industrial landscapes when the only things you can see are manmade and ugly but in certain conditions are graced with a beauty of their own. The towers of the power station are also visible.

This bridge opened in 1998 at a cost of fifty-five miliion pounds and is nicknamed by locals 'the bridge to nowhere' as it essentially leads nowhere and achieves little in terms of lessening peak time congestion, improving travel to work times or attracting new business to the area.
