On Friday I showed this photo of a valley where we had a roadside picnic. Well I thought you might like to see where we had been to start with.
One of the first places we stopped was for me to get a photo of this new bridge over the Afon Elan
It replaces this old bridge which had become unsafe so it was fenced off and people used a bailey bridge to cross the river
The Bailey bridge had been there as long as I had been coming to the area, the last two photos were taken in 2008. I don't think I will miss the noise of driving across the old Bailey Bridge
While I was there getting mu photo's I noticed these guys photographing things. I'll comeback again sometime when they are not around
The first photo I took was near here, an old lead mine. I'll show more in my other blog
I stopped off on the way back to get a photo of the source of the Afon Elan which I thinks here
and while I was walking back this came rumbling past empty (his mate was behind) they were the reason the old bridge was blocked off. Imagine them trundling past full up with tree trunks. I might add it is not uncommon to me them on the roads which are single track round here
I'll leave you with this Stitch photo showing the Elan source it flows off to the left.
