Bridges were the subject of the talk.


Bridges were the subject of Peter White’s talk to the Windsor Fellowship’s latest meeting at Seaton United Reformed Church.

He kept the audience spellbound with a selection of photos showing river crossings from Scotland to Cornwall. He revealed that the old Axmouth Harbour Bridge was the last remaining concrete bridge in England.

He also talked about other local bridges at Colyford, Colyton and Whitford which, over the years, had all been damaged by flooding but rebuilt as they are essential to today’s motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
