First time I've seen a plaque mounted that way! You're a trooper as always Nick!

Aaaargh....plaque date broken off, and funny to even find one on such a tiny bridge, and hung sideways - all firsts, for me at least....absolute mess of a road after a heavy rain, parked 1/2 mile away and walked down muddy road to this little special one, holes rotted all the way through deck, but remains open to traffic
