Good evening Jean,
Can't imagine horses crossing the older bridge, looks too narrow for them.
The perspective chosen is wonderful, shows the strong current of the river, and the surrounding park in beautiful winter ambiance. Fine clear photo.
My best regards,

Bonjour, cher Jean,
Bravo pour l'humour du titre, j'ai beaucoup apprécié.
J'apprécie évidemment le sujet présenté.
Je suis surpris de voir que ces ponts défient les siècles avec bonheur.
Très bonne présentation.

How relative are the words old and modern. Very interesting two bridges so close to each other. I would be afraid a bit to go on this clapper bridge. I like these big slabs of stones. Beautiful picture.
Kind regrad s Malgo

Well framed these two bridges, nice brightness and colors contrast too, well presented, the second in the BG seems more sure to cross the river ...

Certainly a very photogenic venue of the rural setting and such a well composed quintessentially British landscape. Whilst 'the ancient' is obviously the star here, it's interesting to see the 2 bridges together. I love the strong flow of the water as well here. You've captured this location so superbly, Congrats
PS: Tx to your interests on my last upload; Never used vignettting effect, instead spot metering was used on the brightest area only ie the face, the rest is consequential. Hope that explains. Tx once again.

A nice capture of these two bridges constructed in different periodes of time. Fine perspective along the river. The greenery adds a nice colour contrast to the scene. Very nice work:) TFS.

nice composition in which you managed to include two interesting bridges. For me both of them appear ancient, both would be interesting to document here even separately but you have killed two birds with one stone here...
Not the best weather but I suppose very typical there, very natural light.

I'm familiar with this place, though I haven't visited for quite a while: my parents used to live in Devon after they retired back in the sixties. You've managed to exclude any grockles (though there probably weren't many about in January), and any other hints of "modernity" (despite your title!), such as cars, or the visitor centre that you mention. So often, snapshots have waste-bins, advertising signs and so on, when a couple of steps right or left would have eliminated them: the photographer hasn't really "looked"! But you're of course not guilty, and that attention to detail makes this for me a photograph rather than a snap.
