The River Tees runs through the town of Yarm in North East England. It's about a three mile walk from where I live.
|River Tees at Yarm|
The Teesside Princess uses this quay for boat trips up and down the river between Yarm and Stockton-on-Tees.
The red fence extends part of the way along the river bank.
The footpath continues alongside the wall on the left leading to True Lover's Walk and Yarm Bridge (in the background above).
|Yarm Bridge (in front) - Yarm Viaduct (behind)|
There is a fence in that photo but you need exceptional eyesight to see it.
|Hard to miss this one on the raised path.|
If we take a closer look the fence on the viaduct is easy to see.
|Yarm Bridge and Viaduct|
The original stone bridge was built c1400 by Bishop Skirlaw of Durham and for 400 years was the only bridge across the Tees connecting Yorkshire and Durham. Parts of the original can still be seen in the wider modern day bridge which carries road traffic over the Tees
|Yarm, the Viaduct and the Bridge|
The viaduct was built in 1849; it has 43 arches, contains 7 million bricks and carries the railway over the town and the Tees. Our fence must skirt its entire length.
True Lovers' Walk continues upstream under the viaduct with the flood defence gates to properties on the left.
I shall have to continue along the path on another day to see what other
I can find.
In the meantime I'm off to check out other fence posts at Teresa's Good-Fences-48.
