Next stop the fine, low bridge at Lampen where the St Neot Superhighway crosses the river Loveny.

Probably the last ride on this one for a while as she’s scheduled to go off to her winter quarters for some serious pampering very soon.

Counting my blessings I took a vertical twin to Horizon Farm, still lying idle in St Cleer.

Although hoping for some snowy photos to send with Christmas Greetings to Bridge Clubbers the round world over, we have no snow, as is the way of things in a Cornish December.

So here is Rufus The Co-op Bonnie parked in a deep(ish), uncrisp, but even wayside drift of wet leaves from the deck of the disused bridge.

Thank you Richard for your posts, I recently followed the Arun valley rail line passing under and over as many of its bridges as possible. An enjoyable diversion.
Missing the LE in action of recent times.

Thanks Otto, now that the Harley and both Triumphs are running well I'm considering doing a few small jobs on the Fordson as a way of avoiding getting to grips with the LE gearbox.

Eek!


p.s. Arun Valley photos?

My T140ES by a tiny bridge near Bodmin complete with discreet flashers and 10w Halogen pilot light. Probably all courtesy of Paul Goff.
