Pipe Bridge

The darkest night is often the bridge to the brightest tomorrow.” – Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I can think of so many iconic bridges to feature for today’s challenge but this particular one stuck to my mind because of fun memories with family. (I have featured this bridge previously but not in Black and white.)

This is the rustic Fairfield Pipe Bridge that crosses over the The Yarra River in Victoria. It is an Overhead bridge that people use as a bike path or to do their daily exercise or maybe even to watch the people kayaking or boating.

The Fairfield Pipe Bridge is located just south of the Fairfield Boat House. It was built in 1878 to carry water from the Yan Yean Reservoir to Kew.  This bridge was washed away in the floods of 1934 and a new pipe bridge was built close to the site of the original bridge. 

Here are some shots from the top, through it and from under the bridge. CBWC – Pipe Bridge

        I’ve never tried it, but I like the look. 🙂
