YD2 - near the destination of the rivers. Oct 30, 2010
The free designation relates to viewing the bridge. There is a toll for traffic. Why has this review got a YD designation when it is nowhere near the Yorkshire Dales that I am covering? Because the Humber Estuary is where most of the rivers of the Dales have eventually come together to reach the sea. You would find it difficult to relate to the geography without realising this. The exceptions, are the River Dee that runs through Dentdale and joins the Lune, which runs to the west coast and the Ribble, that flows directly into the Irish Sea.

I once crossed the river, near to the site of the bridge, by ferry with Pam and the (then) children. I think it must have been shortly after 1973, when the building got under way. I saw it in varous stages of its growth and crossed it frequently when I was working.

It claims to be the fifth longest single span suspension bridge in the world. I don't get too bothered by this sort of thing but sometimes the beauty of a structure does depend partially on its size and this is certainly both big beautiful. There are viewing areas on both sides.
