Sailing Under the Humber Bridge

The Humber Bridge crosses the estuary between Hessle in East Yorkshire and Barton upon Humber in North Lincolnshire.

At the time it was built in 1981, it was the world’s longest single-span suspension bridge (1.4 miles). That record was beaten in the late 1990s but the Humber Bridge remains the longest in the world that can be crossed on foot or by cycle.

The bridge is a beautiful achievement, and I am not the only one to be inspired by it.

Thanks to Skipper Bruce, for giving me the opportunity to see it from this viewpoint!
