I didn't fancy crossing the bridge with an audience just up the canal, so I settled for viewing this one from the other side. At the time it looked slightly bent, as if someone had been trying to remove it. I was tempted to log it as slightly damaged but having seen Rob W's photo, I'm not so sure now.
