Ramsey Swing Bridge, you're not swinging anymore


Ramsey Swing Bridge is out of action at the moment, undergoing urgent repairs to an estimated cost of  £750,000 to avert a "major failure," apparently.  Well it was built in 1892, so perhaps it needs a bit of a facelift and nip and tuck. The bridge crossing the Sulby River, is a short cut, from the shopping area of town to the local park, beach, swimming pool and residential area. It's a long walk round without it. On the plus side, a chance to photograph the iconic bridge by night under shimmering light before it returns to its normal place.
