Many thanks for adding that info in the comments page, Skip. Appreciate it very much. It is now morning here. Sorry, I have only read your comment this morning. It's around 7.45am, Monday morning. I hope that you've had a great weekend and that your evening/night will go well too. Take care... :)

Thanks alot Mary, I really enjoyed reading about the history of Ashford on the water in Derbyshire. you know when I followed the link they had already added a link to your comment here on pixdaus on the search page. and I thought I'd add the description of the bridge here for anybody who has trouble with links like I sometimes do. The Sheepwash Bridge is exactly as it's name suggests as well as having been a packhorse bridge when it was first built. Lambs were placed in the pen on one side of the river and the ewes swam across the river to get them. The shepards made sure the sheep had a good dunking on the way across! This was an easy way to clean the fleece before shearing. It also says there are a good number of trout swimming around in the water under the bridge So who would have thought the name had a literal meaning! hope your having a nice evening there Mary,...I'm assuming it's evening cause it's morning here. :)

Thanks so much, Skip. I love these charming photos of England too. No doubt the bridge has a history to it. I will try and find out what that could be.... :)

Apologies. This is situated on a river, not a lake. It is near the River Wye in England....
