Magical Elven Bridge

My wallpaper theme this week is the wonderful Northumberland waterfall at Hareshaw Linn, near Bellingham. It’s a wonderful waterfall, but looking at my Flickr stats this week, it’s today’s photo that’s repeatedly caught the eye of my visitors.

Move away from the modern media-fuelled amusements in 21st century Britain, and you’ll inevitably find yourself stepping back into the remnants of our Victorian heritage. The Victorians loved Hareshaw Linn, going so far as to build a picnic area and bandstand so that people could come here and listen to storytelling (an art that isn’t celebrated anywhere near enough these days!) They also built this very Tolkienesque bridge, which in Autumn light as the leaves start to turn must be stunning.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s theme. Next week, I’ll be sharing some photos from Lindisfarne.
