                     Pulteney Bridge, Bath.

   As a bit of light relief - I understand that the Post Office is to issue stamps of English Bridges.

"The Bridges stamp issue celebrates the leaps in engineering that have seen the UK’s bridges evolve   from humble stone crossings to dramatic symbolic landmarks conceived by progressive architects".

Completed to designs by Robert Adam in 1774, part of the bridge collapsed and had to be rebuilt after the floods of 1799 /1800.

       To celebrate, I include here, an experimental photograph taken with my new i- phone 6.
