GARGOYLE AT WINCHCOMBE
GARGOYLE AT WINCHCOMBE
GARGOYLE AT WINCHCOMBE
A selection of Cotswold Gargoyles - Typical of Cotswold villages is Winchcombe where the church is decorated with numerous gargoyles which show an ancient stone-masons sense of humour.
These photographs were taken whilst walking the 'Cotswold Way' which stretches for 102 miles from the city of Bath at the southern end to Chipping Campden at the northern end. The route hugs the Cotswold Scarp and is well worth the effort.

RUST ON THE PIER.

 
MOORING RING - BERWICK-UPON-TWEED
This mooring ring was seen at the end of the stone built pier at the historical town of Berwick-upon-Tweed.
I love the way that the wear from the mooring ropes can be seen on the ring, this and the rust just spells the passing of time to me.
Berwick-upon-Tweed is situated on the Northumbrian coast and is certainly worth a visit.

ALUM CHINE - DORSET.


ALUM CHINE SUSPENSION BRIDGE
Alum Chine near Westbourne at Bournemouth in Dorset derives it's name from an unsuccessful attempt to mine and manufacture Alum during the late 16th century. The deposits proved uneconomic and by the mid 17th century all mining had ceased.
In 1892 a young Winston Churchill fell from a bridge in the Chine nearly losing his life and it is often thought that the Suspension bridge was the bridge in question. In actual fact the bridge from which he fell was a Rustic bridge located further up the Chine. That bridge was replaced in 1922 with a Spandrel/Arched bridge.
The Suspension bridge was built by David Rowell & Company in 1903 at a cost of £480
