Another of Monday nights images from my walk along the Trent. The distinctive Trent Bridge as seen from the Embankment and in the distance, Eastcroft Incinerators smoke plume.

A solitary rock, caught in the flow of the River Trent, steadfast in it's determination to withstand the current.
A water themed long exposure from beneath the Span of Clifton Bridge.
Another shot loosely based on the Nottingham, UK Flickr group theme of the month, Water. A 20 seconds exposure at f/11 iso 200 using Lee BigStopper and an ND-Grad.
The Wilford Toll bridge was opened on 16th June 1870 and was built by Sir Robert Juckes-Clifton to carry traffic for Clifton Colliery. The bridge was built using cast-iron construction. The toll house was designed by the architect E.W. Hughes
Until the bridge was taken over by Nottingham City Coucil in 1967, it remained the property of the Clifton family.
When the city council assessed the bridge, it was deamed to be in poor condition and was subsiquently closed to traffic in 1974.
The centre span of the bridge was demolished and replaced by a narrower foot bridge as seen here.
The bridge sees yet more alterations in the near future, and is due to be enlarged and stregthened to carry Phase 2 of the Nottingham Express Transit system. A contentious issue for me, as the Phase 2 tram route has already ripped through the Great Central Railway embankment, and cuts awefully close to the Wilwell Farm Cutting SSSI if not clipping the corner of the site itself.
