Travel Photo Thursday – Pulteney Bridge

Avon River at Bath
The Pulteney Bridge over the Avon River, Bath

Named after Frances Pulteney, heiress of Bathwich, the Pulteney Bridge was built in 1773 over the Avon River near Bath.

The river is mesmerizing, I could have watched it for hours.

  1. How is it going? I’m concerned about all the technical challenges you are having and I do hope they get resolved… Meanwhile, I responded via email to your latest missive… and missed the part that you had already sought out tech help! 🙂
    The steel gods must be angry… and mercury is on hiatus.
    All will be well.

  2. By the way, I forgot to add that you have such beautiful pictures for this post… 🙂

  3. You’ve used this photo before, I just don’t remember the exact day. Either way, I still feel elated by it!

  4. Yes, I’ve used the bottom photo. First time using the top one. I’ve been using and reusing the bottom one and didn’t notice until last night how beautiful the top one looked with the building in the background.
    Glad you like.

  5. Glad to see the site back up too! Love, love the photos….I’m always entranced by old world architecture. I will have to check this one out.

  6. Bath is such a pretty place. I was only there for a short time as a stop on a whirlwind day tour, but I really enjoyed it. Nice photos.

  7. I have seen anything like this. Is that a curved man made structure jutting out of the river?? What is it?

  8. Bath is such a fascinating place, particularly for its public baths. Have you tried them yet? I love this photo of the bridge. And that water feature is remarkable! It must’ve been quite a sight.

  9. Yes, we did the Roman Bath as well. I could have stood on that bridge for hours, just watching the water. There was a garden or park nearby that I only noticed as we were leaving. I’d love to go back and spend a whole day exploring. Next time.

  10. Beautiful bridge. The river does look mesmerizing. Haven’t been the Bath yet, but it’s on the list! Lovely pics.
