Shadow Shot Sunday/Sunday Bridge:
Tatton Arms Footbridge


Yesterday I showed you Tatton Arms Bridge together with its reflection in the river Mersey at Northenden.

It is from this bridge I took the photograph looking downstream past the Heron sculpture and towards the Northenden Bridges which I featured last week.

The footbridge leads to a section of the Trans Pennine Trail which I followed from here down to the motorway bridge.


Here is looking back towards the Tatton Arms from which the bridge gets its name. It was a grand Edwardian public house but alas closed down in 2007 and has an uncertain future.

More about the area can be found on the website of the Northenden Water Park Friends.

  3. It would be very sad if the wonderful pub building was allowed to becoem derelict. But the bridge provided you with super shadows!

  4. Sad to see a beautiful building boarded up, but happy to see a lovely bridge dappled with shadow.

  5. The fence and railing are there for safety - but the wonderful shadows are a visual reward as we complete our passage across. I like this stout steel bridge, I feel secure as I motor across...

  6. I know the fencing is necessary, but it does rather destroy the lines in this bridge.

  9. I love the composition of the second photo. Though, I too, hate to see a lovely building boarded up with an uncertain future.

  13. The bridges are great, but my eye really caught sight of the Tudor house... What a pity it would be to lose that!
