2012 Week 6 – The Dee at Chester

Posted on by Jason

Sigma 50mm ISO400 f5.6 1/125. A pretty straightforward view of the River Dee from the Queens Park suspension bridge.

The bridge was originally built in 1852 but when Chester Corporation accepted the responsibility for the bridge, they decided to demolish it. This happened in August 1922 and a new bridge took its place. The opening of the current bridge took place on 18 April 1923. Here you can see the bandstand at The Groves, The Lady Diana and The Mark Twain showboats.
