A to Z Blogging Challenge – Theme Reveal!

Where would we be in this world if it wasn’t for bridges? They connect people and places, and at a time like now, we need those connections to be strong and resilient. Bridges survive for centuries, a testimony to early engineers who built them, and they bring together people across divides.

Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol

My theme will explore the history of British bridges from the ancient Roman times to the modern ones. Most of my bridges will over water, but they are also those that carry trains and boats, as well as vehicles and pedestrians. As for the architects and engineers, they’ll be some famous names, and lesser known ones. Are bridges beautiful? I suppose it depends on where you stand, figuratively and literally. You can’t deny the beauty of the symmetry in many designs, the use of stone and iron, or the wings of cables in the suspensions.

Hope you’ll stop by to follow me.

    Mummy used to live near that bridge, so I expect she’ll want me to report on what you’re doing.

    I don’t think we have bridges, but we do love tunnels!
    Good luck with your A to Z.

  10. An interesting theme which I look forward to following. My father grew up across the river from Ironbridge in Shropshire. I now live in the Scottish Borders – a region with lots of bridges over the River Tweed and its many tributaries. .

  11. Great theme! I love bridges – in my personal mythology you can make wishes on them since they are magical places in-between two worlds.
    I’m looking forward to reading about them.
