Bridges, Bakewell

I have featured Bakewell, Derbyshire before here and here. We passed through it again in September 2018, had a nice walk around and along the River Wye plus a good lunch in one of the caf├ęs.

Cowden Japanese Garden, Clackmannanshire

The good lady is a keen gardener and when she heard that the Japanese Garden, at Cowden, Clackmannanshire was reopening after being a long time overgrown, we had to visit. The garden was first opened in 1908, but was closed to the public in 1955 and left to go to ruin. Thankfully the recent restoration is restoring the garden to its former glory.

Japanese gardens are very elegant. Despite the refurbishment still going on Cowden certainly is. There is an air of peace and harmony about the place. Japanese bridges are especially elegant. The first bridge below is by the path near the garden’s entrance. The second spans the garden’s large pond:-

Threave Garden

Threave Garden lies just to the west of Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway and are in the care of the National Trust for Scotland.

The gardens are lovely, well worth a visit.

Kessock Bridge, Inverness

The Kessock Bridge carries the A9 over the Beauly Firth at Inverness.

I took the photos when we were up north in April last year. They were maybe taken from too close as the cable stay towers, if not the cables themselves, show up better on the photo in the link.
