Long Creek Suspension Bridge (Replica)
Posted May 17, 2013, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Yes, this is a modern bridge, but it is a replica of a historic bridge that once spanned Long Creek in the Melvern Vicinity. A photograph can be viewed here:

James: If you feel that this bridge does not belong, than no worries. I added it because I don't mind good replicas on here.
