Ancient Footbridge

By johnriley1uk  
A thin footbridge, wide enough for one person only, spams the river as we look down from the walls of Haddon Hall.

One has to wonder why it was built so small, but it sits in an enchanting scene--Well seen!

I remember well this scene from the ramparts of the rose garden........we visited in 2000 whilst staying in Buxton........and I also seem to recall it is called the 'Dorothy Bridge'.
I read up on the story behind the name at the time but now forget the detail.

Dorothy Vernon probably, named after a character in a Gilbert & Sullivan opera. She started her escape with her lover from the Dorothy Vernon steps leading from the first floor of the hall. Maybe she then fled over the Dorothy bridge, it would make sense.

A wonderfully calming image, one which has been captured from a great pov. I do feel however that I would have like to have seen more of the bridge and less of the greenery Ron.
