Wonderful detail of the bridge, Peter. We walked to the other side to have a good view of it from different angles.
The video is very interesting Peter. I used to work at one time for a company that made crucibles for the foundry industry

Great detail.
I took a similar shot to this when I was there, being the first construction of its type this style of framework must have took some imagination on the part of the designer.

i especially like how the circles are lined up
It is nice that they used decorative pieces just for want and not need.

I like the elegant, filigran details of this old Iron Bridge.
Britain was the pioneer of this sort of bridges.
It looks like you've caught the piece in your photo, which was being cast in the video! It's a beautiful area, Peter smile
Some fine views of an iconic structure, Peter.
Great shot!
