Underneath the Arches (or, the Humber Bridge).

The Humber Bridge, opened on the 24th of June 1981, still draws people to view it on both banks of the Humber Estuary which it spans.
We often take Suzi there for a walk and on this occasion we walked through the nature conservation area below the south side approach.  There are wetlands there, a lake and areas where the wildlife can flourish.

The area below the bridge has been left for nature to take over.

Not Dandelions, not sure what they are tho'

Cowslips, the meadow area here is well populated with them.

Underneath the south approach from Lincolnshire. (The best side!!)

The far bank is the Yorkshire side.

This tileworks below the bridge is still producing the traditional Lincolnshire Pantiles.

People like to walk across the bridge.

The lake below.

The large concrete blocks are the anchor points for the suspension cables.
