Just off the road between Newport Pagnell and Northampton, this old stone bridge designed by Sir John Soane in 1793, has a Grade I Historic Places listing. Obviously never designed for cars, it is used for motor traffic. A bridge between past and present?

    • Tyringham is a pretty amazing place. It’s an 18th century stately home, set in a beautiful park. I visited quite early on an autumn morning, and there was still a slight mist on the water.

  2. So pretty. I love the UK. I’ve spent a grand total of 4 days there, but I felt so at home. I definitely want to go back. I’m mostly English and Scottish so I suppose it makes sense that I felt a sense of being home.

    • Thank you. I mentioned to Tish that I used to work close by to the museum and didn’t even know it existed. Definitely somewhere I’d like to go next time I’m in London (whenever that is!).

  4. Beautiful, moody editing for a beautiful bridge. You say it was “never designed for cars, [but] it is used for motor traffic”. What kind of motor traffic?
