It was sheer luck, Granderog.

As soon as I saw the photo, the only thing that came to mind was the old footbridge but I certainly wasn`t certain and was extremely surprised that my guess was correct


Next offering  -  this building no longer exists but another business is on the same site. This framed photo was shown to me when I visited a few years ago as I had a family connection.

Well Diapason for "not having a clue" You are spot on. It certaimly is the centre section of the old footbridge now long gone.
Here it is being dismantled and craned away for scrap.


Your Turn.

I really haven`t a clue, but it does remind me of one of the footbridges over the railway line at Sittingbourne Railway Station. Possibly the `old` one.

You have it Grandarog, Glad the clues helped.


Over to you


The Chalybeate Spring at Tunbridge Wells

Princess Victoria, later
Queen Victoria, drank the waters every day during her stay in Tunbridge Wells in 1834. She and her mother, the Princess Victoria, Duchess of Kent, would pay a visit to the spring and then stroll along the Pantiles. The water contains a significant level of dissolved mineral salts, with iron and manganese contributing to its characteristic flavour.
The Spire Southampton Private Hospital in Chalybeate Close, Southampton, UK was formerly known as The Chalybeate Hospital until 2007. Content of the chalybeate waters from Tunbridge Wells

Gentleman pouring himself another drink... Don’t think of it as my third large G&T, just think of it as a booster :)

Thanks MartinR.   Some of my family stayed there in the years before it closed.  It was in a sorry state as I recall.
