River Trent
The River Trent is the third longest river in England (185 miles). It rises on Biddolph Moor, Staffordshire, then follows a generally north east to northerly path to join the River Ouse at Trent Falls. The Ouse & Trent combined form the Humber Estuary.
It is a very important river, economically having a number of Power Stations and industrial sites along its banks. It is navigable as far as Burton-On-Trent.

Wilford Suspension Bridge
This was built in 1908 by Nottingham Corporation Water Department in the first instance to carry a water pipeline across the River Trent to Wilford Hill Reservoir, but the opportunity was taken to incorporate a pedestrian facility as well. The bridge still belongs to the water authority (in 2010 Severn Trent Water), and use by pedestrians and cyclists is still only permissive; it is not a right of way. It is Listed Grade II.
The following link shows the bridge during its period of closure and repair between 2008 and 2010, a project which cost 1.9m. LinkExternal link
