    The Newport Bridge - Middlesbrough July 2012 & July 2014 Visits

    Evening all,

    Had a crack at the Newport Bridge twice now, was unsuccessful the first time due to the local police eurocopter appearing from behind a building like an Apache, whilst half way up the ladder of doom (Pretty much slide down the ladders and gtfo, it would appear unseen)... lol.. Second attempt was much more chilled out, a nice leisurely climb despite slipping about on bird shit near the top and in drizzle... Visited both times with Borolad who had bad luck both times, all most impaling himself the fist time, and forgetting his camera battery the second (Came in handy though, he was distracting the secca who was supposed to be watching over the work site, the bridge is in the process of being painted a hideous red and silver).

    Anyway's history, from wiki tonight as we've all heard about the bridge before, not exactly the first mental case to have done this one!! :crazy ;)

    Now for the Piccys!! :)

    It's awesome up top there. Did you venture into some of the doors up there? Bit pigeony, but worth a look.

    Now try doing it during the day, for the added challenge :thumb
