A Little Bridge at St Anne's on Sea
For this month's contribution to Broer som Binder (Bridges between) we have travelled to the Lancashire coastal resort of St Anne's on Sea.
Just set back off the main road to Lytham is an ornamental garden. On the right you can perhaps make out a little bridge.
Here is that bridge in all its glory. It doesn't actually do much more than look pretty. The path over the top is very rocky and cobbly.
From the end of the ornamental gardens a footpath cuts between the sand dunes and a small park encircled by a minature railway. My wife's wheelchair almost got stuck in sand that had blown on to the path.
Beyond lies the sea, or more correctly, the estuary of the River Ribble. The tide looks far out, but in a few hours it may be pounding at the wall.
