- Fancy looking bridges of The World.
I really like the one in town….
I love that one too! Never looked up what it was before though so thanks.
Anyway I’ll add this one because I went there (Ronda) on holiday a month or so ago. It may be old skool and not as modern as those already mentioned, but certainly fancy looking and rather impressive, like something out of lord of the rings:

Right, amendment to this thread – you need to state the name and location of the bridge!
This is nothing special but it’s local to me and sits above a big gorge that has any number of big and small bridges crossing various bits of the two rivers that meet there.

Thought that the lower arches looked like a later addition to add some support to the original tall arches. Quick google…Posted 4 years ago
This was the first of the arched high-level bridges. It was built to carry the Thornsett Turnpike Road, now called Church Road, over the river Goyt in 1835. The lower tier of the bridge was added in 1888, when major strengthening work was undertaken. The path under the smaller arch follows the route of the former leat or headrace, which delivered water from the Goyt to Torr mill, via an aqueduct. At the head of the leat lies a small bridge close to the site of a cottage known as Ned Mill. This bridge was part of the water management for Torr Mill. It seems likely that Ned Mill was the water mans residence.wittonweaversMember
Binners you beat me to the one of Rivington by a mere 4 minutes! Its called the 7 Arch bridge and the 7 represents the days of the week. In the gardens, one of the flights of steps has 365 steps (representing days) and this is bisected by 4 paths (seasons).
