Monk's Bridge

By robs    
This is a revisit to Monk's Bridge on Cold Fell in West Cumbria. Last time I photographed it from the other "easy" access side (which just involves scrambling down a steep, grassy slope before dropping onto a rock ledge). This one involves a bit more scrambling and climbing... ideal when there is a deep, fast flowing river to fall into!..Monk's Bridge is thought to be the oldest packhorse bridge in Cumbria and was built for the monks in the nearby Savignian (and then Cicstercian) monastry of Calder Abbey which existed from 1135-1536.

Gorgeous image and colours .... maybe a little bit of texture in the water would enhance further, but it's a super pic, I love it, Eileen
