At the described location. Nothing to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in very good condition. An interesting day to visit the bridge with the whole area beneath it being in flood.

Drove / walked over this bridge three times before the FB jumped out! Either the stonework is FB coloured, or vice versa.
