Intro

I was up Norfolk/Suffolk for a few days and had a few visits planned, nothing went as it should and ended up feeling a bit rubbish. I needed somewhere I could sit on top of and relax for a bit. I found this and was incredibly glad I did. Sometimes you don't need to travel far to find what you're looking for.

All fisheye, a bit gritty and a bit crap, but it was fun. Enjoy.


History, present and future

Then it was refurbished...

...Sort of

£630,000 and they only half finished it?

The rotting side is slowly falling into further disrepair and you get the feeling it's loosing hope, It shouldn't be red, it never was originally and it doesn't look original or as characteristic as the black side. Shame, Hopefully it'll all be done up and they'll finish the job before it's too far gone falls into the Yare.


The visit and pictures

So it was one of those weeks

Had a crappy few visits that didn't go as planned and didn't quite feel too brilliant

16083568915_c7b6e5b798_b.jpg


I'd had a day of fails and then missed the train I was intending to catch

15463903223_47bffdfbc5_b.jpg


After many wanders I'd found my way back and took a rest, I couldn't relax and needed to get up somewhere

16057771666_c8646a176c_b.jpg


Google came to the rescue and then there I was

15897798127_c7ed174a5c_b.jpg


I needed to get to this, at least do something and then there I was, in the end the trip wasn't wasted

15896269270_359052e018_b.jpg


It had a lot of character and it was a great night, dark skies highlighted with clouds and a pretty strong wind blew the bridge sideways

I was in and it felt relaxed, again you sit up somewhere and it's all the same, big rush, then you chill at the top, the pictures are always different but every time you climb down, you want to be back up again

16057766936_22002dff2b_b.jpg


The thing swayed like anything but that added to it

16081636411_ccb1531378_b.jpg


It had character and for some reason it just felt good to be there

15896120938_f6b1dc36e1_b.jpg


It wasn't even high, it was just fun, like a climbing frame that had been neglected, waiting for some numpty like me to sit on it

15461251424_4a9a3c065c_b.jpg


Even better, the public wandered below me oblivious, to be fair, I was oblivious to them

15896264260_af20d0550c_b.jpg


It was just silent

16082843132_7d7ea795c8_b.jpg


The fresh air cleared my head but the wind was as if you were even higher up

15461249094_79c884c872_b.jpg


I clambered down and casually crossed back over on the public section right passed the locals

15896261810_24e6db7b5c_b.jpg


Then I got to the point where you look back for one more look and then onto the next

16057760766_bfba405f2d_b.jpg


No tripod, No light but luckily I had a bit of time and bridge

15896259750_79a1d0bd46_b.jpg


The images don't show it as it's best but that's not the reason I climbed it

15897785927_f1487c785b_b.jpg


It was fun

And it was windy


I hope you enjoyed!

Cheers

Nice one, an entertaining read and sounds like you had fun :thumb

Don't know what you mean about the pictures mate, they look good to me! Guessing Christmas arrived a little early with the new lens?

bob on that :thumb Last time I was down that way I'm sure it was painted blue and covered in sheeting (if its the one I'm thinking of, next to Asda?)
Yeah, that's the one mate. When I was on it there was a bit of blue paint on it, but not much. Most of it had flaked off. Cheers :)
