As I was taking these pictures of lion heads above a bank, an elderly gentleman waited patiently then said he’d never noticed them before he’d seen me do that. Just goes to show you should always look up.

A bridge with three lives, originally built in the 13th century then widened, first in the 18th century and again in the 19th century.
