    The blue bridge

    by muguruki Written Jan 19, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The blue bridge that crosses the Dee at Queensferry to Garden City is a lovely old bridge built in 1926 that replaced an even older bridge that was right alongside this bridge. It is possible to see what’s left of the stone structure from the original bridge on ever bank of the river. There are pubs either side of the bridge I guess these boozers existed to while away the time till the ferry came back to your side of the river before the first bridge was built.

    At one time the bridge would open to let ships through but as long as I have known it it has never opened. I'm led to believe by law it had to open at least once a year but I doubt that would ever be possible with several layers of blue paint covering the once moving parts of the bridge.

    John Summers Headquarters Building

    by muguruki Updated Mar 29, 2011

    The Clock tower and main office building of what was John Summers Steel works. This elegant symmetrical building of polished red brick and terra-cotta is said to resemble the Midland Hotel in Manchester. Sadly there is a chance that this lovely pld building may be demolished.

    Walking to Ewloe Castle

    by Myfanwe Written May 3, 2010

    This fantastic walk starts from the Car park in Wepre Country Park. The ultimate goal of the walk is to reach Ewloe Castle but there are some really great features to note along the way. The lower path takes you along a boardwalk over some bogland habitat where you can see dragonflies and damselflies in the summer. Further along you will pass by a great waterfall and some great sandstone rocky outcrops alongside the path. After visiting the Castle we took the upper path which carried straight on to complete the circular route towards the visitor centre. The walk took about 40 minutes to complete.
