Bigsweir Bridge, Wye Valley added to Bridges in South West by clinkadink on 08/12/2023

Wasn't planning this one, but it was on my return journey back south down the Wye Valley. A very pretty bridge over the River Wye.

Bigsweir Bridge is an 1827 road bridge crossing the River Wye, straddling the boundary between the parish of St. Briavels, Gloucestershire, England, and Llandogo, Monmouthshire, Wales.

The elegant cast-iron road bridge was built in 1827 as part of the new turnpike road constructed up the lower part of the Wye valley between Chepstow and Monmouth. The bridge connects the English and Welsh sides of the river, with an abandoned but recently restored toll house on the Welsh side. The bridge comprises a single arch of 50 metres (55 yd) , and was designed by Charles Hollis of London and cast at Merthyr Tydfil.

Spalding wind farm (By Sammie99)

If you are brave enough you can drive down North Drove Bank, it's rutted and single tracked with no passing spaces and a steep bank into water to one side. Personally I cycle down there, much safer. There are a few obvious places to stop and take off from here. It is very quiet and I have yet to meet anyone else on foot down there.
