Intro I was up Norfolk/Suffolk for a few days and had a few visits planned, nothing went as it should and ended up feeling a bit rubbish. I needed somewhere I could sit on top of and relax for a bit. I found this and was incredibly glad I did. Sometimes you don't need to travel far to find what you're looking for. All fisheye, a bit gritty and a bit crap, but it was fun. Enjoy. History, present and future Then it was refurbished... ...Sort of http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/railway_bridge_footpath_reopens_as_630_000_refurbishment_of_vauxhall_bridge_in_great_yarmouth_is_completed_1_2819542 Â£630,000 and they only half finished it? The rotting side is slowly falling into further disrepair and you get the feeling it's loosing hope, It shouldn't be red, it never was originally and it doesn't look original or as characteristic as the black side. Shame, Hopefully it'll all be done up and they'll finish the job before it's too far gone falls into the Yare. The visit and pictures So it was one of those weeks Had a crappy few visits that didn't go as planned and didn't quite feel too brilliant I'd had a day of fails and then missed the train I was intending to catch After many wanders I'd found my way back and took a rest, I couldn't relax and needed to get up somewhere Google came to the rescue and then there I was I needed to get to this, at least do something and then there I was, in the end the trip wasn't wasted It had a lot of character and it was a great night, dark skies highlighted with clouds and a pretty strong wind blew the bridge sideways I was in and it felt relaxed, again you sit up somewhere and it's all the same, big rush, then you chill at the top, the pictures are always different but every time you climb down, you want to be back up again The thing swayed like anything but that added to it It had character and for some reason it just felt good to be there It wasn't even high, it was just fun, like a climbing frame that had been neglected, waiting for some numpty like me to sit on it Even better, the public wandered below me oblivious, to be fair, I was oblivious to them It was just silent The fresh air cleared my head but the wind was as if you were even higher up I clambered down and casually crossed back over on the public section right passed the locals Then I got to the point where you look back for one more look and then onto the next No tripod, No light but luckily I had a bit of time and bridge The images don't show it as it's best but that's not the reason I climbed it It was fun And it was windy I hope you enjoyed!
