WordPress Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

A Pedestrian Bridge for Pedestrian Times

This ancient Packhorse bridge at Wasdale Head, Cumbria, UK, dates back at least 200 years but may be older as there has been a church established here (St Olaf’s) since Saxon times. It is a pedestrian bridge from more pedestrian times, used by smugglers as well as farmers moving from the coast of the Irish Sea inland to the Lake District. Nowadays a handy route for walking the Wasdale fells around Pillar.
