Photographer's Note

Today’s post shows another view of Beggar’s Bridge, taken on the same day as all my recent posts. I included an extensive history of it in yesterday's post
I wanted to show how narrow it is and have an opportunity to post the photo you will see in the WS. The road bridge is just out of sight on the left. Notice there is still some frost on the grass.
Originally Beggar’s Bridge was used for pack horses but nowadays it is only open to walkers. Apparently it wasn’t suitable for horses and carts; take a look at the WS. I found this photo of Beggar’s Bridge in a frame mouldering away in the garden shed. It used to belong to my grandparents-in-law, but why they would want such a photo on the wall is beyond my understanding. When you get over your concern for the welfare of the poor horse, you can’t help wondering how, in those days, a photographer would just be passing by. He would take an age setting up his equipment
