Old Bridge, Berwick upon Tweed

To finish this week’s wallpaper theme, here’s a shot of the third (and oldest) of the bridges crossing the Tweed at Berwick upon Tweed.

The other two bridges might be more photogenic, but there’s something extremely charming about this bridge, with its single lane of traffic, and a style of construction that invokes a feeling of permanence that modern building often doesn’t match. This bridge is 399 years old, and somehow in another 400 years I could imagine this bridge still being here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s wallpaper. There’ll be more shots from ‘up north’ next week!
