The Humber Bridge: Travel Snapshot

The Humber Bridge in England connects North Lincolnshire with the East Riding of Yorkshire.  It is the fifth longest single-span suspension bridge in the world and was opened in the 1980s by Queen Elizabeth II.

However, for 16 years it was the longest of its type in the world.

This image was captured on the marshy banks of the Humber Estuary at Barton-upon-Humber – a small town in North Lincolnshire where the bridge ends.

It was a particularly dreary day, but this steel giant was amazing to look at and the scene was soothingly quiet and peaceful.

      Hi Brock, cheers for your comment. I think it looks better when gloomy – maybe I’m just a bit depressing, he he.
