A Week in Bath (5)

Early 19th Century Bridges on the Kennet & Avon Canal, where it runs through Sidney Gardens, probably the only park with a Canal and a Railway running through it. The Gardens were privately owned at the time the Canal was built, and the proprietors demanded 2,000 guineas for the right to take the Canal through their property

Well...this is beautiful!

I would very much like to have the experience of cycling there, Lisl.
Lisl: I think you would very much enjoy it, Ray
You've caught some really beautiful reflections Lisl!
Lisl: They did look particularly good that day, Elizabeth
Superb composition Lisl... what a wonderful point of view to capture all of the reflections....petersmile

This is incredibly beautiful, Lisl. I love the second bridge peeking at us from in behind the front one.
Lisl: Thank you kindly, Darlene. I suspect the builders of these bridges may have felt good when they saw the effect
A delightful 'arch'ityple image ... Very good indeed Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you, Richard - you are very kind

They are really beatiful & graceful structures Lisl. £2k was a lot of dosh then!
Lisl: It certainly was. I guess the owners of the land were well-pleased with the result, though

4 for the price of one! I don't recall seeing this scene yet, Lisl, so I guess we're definitely coming back! smile
Lisl: We've been holding out on you, Ginnie - just so you will be back!
A bridge in a bridge...This is superb Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you very much, Richard
This is very nice, Elisabeth.
Lisl: Thank you, Frank

With the 2,000 guineas they bought a boat to have some fun on the canal on Fridays.

Beautiful picture
Lisl: Nice thought, Louis. And many thanks

You seem to be retracing my childhood favourite haunts Lisl. Keep up the good work, lovely reflection in the canal.
Lisl: If this brings back happy memories of when you were a boy, look on - I am actually posting 7 days this week. Thank you
great reflections
Lisl: Thank you, Chantal

What a lovely picture, those reflections are wonderful
Lisl: It was one of those days, Anne, when most pictures came out reasonably well
This is a really gorgeous shot. Love the cyclist in there. I see two bridges. Are they both for pedestrians only?
Lisl: Yes - they are both for pedrestrians. I didn't see the cyclist until I downloaded the picture, and was pleased to get him in (twice)

Wonderful photo
Lisl: Thank you, Vintage
A lovely double reflection Lisl
Lisl: Thank you, Fred - I was so busy talking, someone had to point it out to me - how ashamed I was!!

Now that's very pretty. I like the reflections of the lovely bridges in the water. 2000 guineas was a heck of a lot of monet then. Mind you, I still think it's a lot of money.
Lisl: It WAS and IS a lot. But what an enhancement to their property at the time, though of course it would have been a busy Canal then
What fine bridges and a great reflection the the front one.
Lisl: They are a very pleasant sight, Brian

Lisl: Thank you very much, Cherie
The reflections lift this from nice to excellent Lisl
Lisl: Well, I appreciate your comment, Bill, thank you
Fine shot of a very attractive bridge!
Lisl: Thank you very much, Tom

Bonne soirée,

Lisl: Merci bien, Anne
A nice view, Lisl. Saw this section on TV a few weeks ago. Canal Walks programme.
Lisl: Did you, Graeme? I would have liked to have seen that
