Cambus o^ May

The original 1905 suspension bridge being cut up ready for replacement. At the time I just happened to be taking a walk along the old Deeside Line when I managed to get a few shots of the dismantling. Thirty years later the replacement bridge was itself badly damaged by the River Dee in spate; it was eventually repaired and re-opened in 2021.
