Skew Bridge 3

 

Skew Bridge completed. It was very popular as a Sunday walk to go and see it. However, the traffic onthe road has increased, so very few people walk through it nowadays. It has a cathedral-like aspect as one drives through. In 2005 it was strengthened by tie rods being inserted right through all six arches to prevent them from spreading apart.

E R Watts, who took the photograph and sold copies as postcards, had a hardware shop in West Street, Somerton, and introduced the latest technology as it became available - cameras, electric items, the first telephones. His shop is now an antique centre.
