Nice pic, but if I may...

I think it would have been better, if possible, to get to a position on the towpath where the branch of the tree wasn't obscuring the second arch so much.

Just an observation.

Hi Shaun,
I like this pic very much, especially the water reflections. I'm curious as to how the bridge gets it's name ... do you know ?. ... Jack

Cheers Guys. The bridge gets its name because the lower arch has a small telegraph pole on it, and the wires used to run between the two levels of the bridge.



Comments noted - thanks!

Shaun,
Thanks for the info, now you've explained that I think I can see the pole behind the foliage. I was interested ... I worked almost 40 years in telecoms, but a long long time since I did overhead work. Retired now BTW ... Jack
