The famous Bridge On the River Kwai in Thailand. The rounded truss is part of the original bridge while the square ones were replaced by Japan after WW2 when the bridge had been destroyed by Allied bombs.

That would have been a great job avondale. Just about perfect. In the great outdoors, wandering around the bush, doing a bit of survey work, fabulous. I'm actually a bit jealous :)

Yes it's a life I'd do all over again. Well maybe not so thrilling these days. Times have moved on.

I posted this a few years back.

A Medieval Pack Horse Bridge at Wycoller, Lancashire UK. not bad for a solid stone bridge dating from about 800 years ago, but Clam bridge (second image) just downstream of it predates that, and is about a thousand years old.

The left hand side of the left arch of the pack horse bridge is quite different. Do you think that they started from the right and realised they had built it too long? That is a serious question


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

...and one that I cannot answer ;-)a, personally I dont think that the aesthetic element came into play, more a case of just getting the job done!

when you look at the right arch it is beautifully made and I'd wondered if other side had collapsed and somehow they ended up with this. But the rest of it doesn't look out of kilter and the capping along top looks okay but that's a heck of a long time ago to make assumptions on :-)

Ah, but it did come in to play and it's a lovely and very unusual bridge and you have done it proud.

That would have been about the time you were first around Richard :twisted::eek:
