SK1772 : Bridge over the Wye at Upperdale

taken 6 years ago, near to Monsal Head, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Bridge over the Wye at Upperdale
Bridge over the Wye at Upperdale
This crossing of the River Wye leads to a track up hill to the halt on the former railway line linking Ambergate and Buxton, now the Monsal Trail.

It is the same view as the photograph taken in 1971 SK1772 : Upperdale Bridge, which had formerly been wrongly located as "Cresswell".

"Geographer A" takes photo, and gives it wrong location.
"Geographer B" spots the error.
"Geographers C,D,E" etc put their thinking caps on and come up with varied suggestions.
"Geographer F, who is an absolute whiz at these puzzles, suggests it is the same bridge as shown at SK1772 : Having a rest by the Bridge over the River Wye.
All agree he is correct and "Geographer P" ie me, goes off and takes a present day photograph of the bridge.

The Renault 4 in the 1971 photograph would not be able to drive very far up the track today, now only passable by 4*4s and trial bikes.
