Newbridge over the River Taw near Barnstaple, North Devon. The name 'Taw' derives from the Celtic language meaning 'peaceful' and the river certainly is placid here. The Taw is tidal to Newbridge which is 12 miles from the river's mouth in Bideford Bay.

I just put this picture up for reflectionthursday and then realised I'd posted it before - is it OK to re-tag the original one?

I totally agree with Elsie (ETS2). I just love the old bridges (don't see them much in the USA). Amusing to me that it's name is Newbridge

I've done a bit of research Larry - there was a bridge a hundred yards from this site in 1326 (I think some parts are still visible - I'll check it out) - the current structure is 19th century so 'new' in terms of bridges in the area.
I am drawn to bridges too - I'll post a few more in the future!
