Over Yonder Bridge

The footbridge from the Peak Forest Canal towpath by Adamsons Industrial Estate to Raglan Street at Over Yonder was declared unsafe in 2006. Neither British Waterways, Tameside Council nor the owners of the industrial estate have agreed who is responsible for its repair and so it remains closed.

See its reflection in the canal on Hyde Daily Photo.

See the original photograph from which this was selectively cropped on the Geograph website, or all 49 photographs (with slideshow) from my walk of April 10th on the Geotrips website.

If you look closely (click your mouse on the photo to enlarge it) you should be able to make out a heron on the towpath. It flew across to the opposite bank later: see the photographs I posted of it last Saturday.

This is an early contribution to Sunday Bridges at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.


  1. its a shame that no-one can agree whose responsibility the bridge is!

  2. This is one of those stories that is a real heartbreaker. I wonder if the kids smear on there at night and leave graffiti. I think it looks to be in amazing condition...your shot of it is great. Love that arched green-looking appealing to the eye.
