NY4624 : High in the air!

taken 21 days ago, near to Pooley Bridge, Cumbria, Great Britain

High in the air!
High in the air!
During the three-hour period when the new Pooley Bridge was being moved from the construction site to its destination across the River Eamont, I suspect that the engineers had their fingers crossed. Fortunately, everything went well.

The horizontal tie below the arch is not a permanent feature: it was just there to ensure that the main steelwork did not warp during the lift.
