Newport Transporter Bridge

Now with added lens mist and typical Welsh rain

The Newport Transporter Bridge (Welsh: Pont Gludo Casnewydd) is a transporter bridge that crosses the River Usk in Newport, South Wales. The bridge is the lowest crossing on the River Usk. It is a Grade I listed structure. The transporter bridge is very rare, with only eight remaining in use worldwide.
A storm was brewing... In fact apparently the worst storm that the SW has seen for a long time. So, with this knowledge, we decided it would be a good idea to go and climb a bridge :D

Having already been here, and failed due to lack of preparation, we retired. This time, determined not to fail and have to pay £6.20 another time, we were ready to get up the giant.

That's one of the UK 3 done, onto to the next one now!

Visited with WhoDaresWins, Wellingtonian, END-PROC and Grit.

From this point onwards, we were plunged into darkness. As expected, the floodlights went off automatically (at the random time of 21.30 it seems)..
