Chester-Old Dee Bridge

 

The oldest of the river crossings in Chester - there was a Roman bridge on this site and the present bridge dates mainly from 1387.  The Roman bridge disappeared and was replaced, until the 14th century, by a ferry.

That's an amazing age for a bridge Tom. One marvels at all the sights it must have seen over the centuries
Tom Wilson: Yes, quite astonishing
Surprising that it is still capable of taking cars
Tom Wilson: Yes, I was surprised too!
I am amazed they let vegetation grow on the bricks and mortar.
Tom Wilson: They probably have an annual clean-up
What a fine old bridge, good to see it still standing and in use.
Tom Wilson: Very aged, very fine
