Ramsey Harbour swing bridge links the main part of the town of Ramsey, to Mooragh Promenade, which runs along the seafront. It carries both a road and a footway over the Sulby River, the bridge was completed in 1892 and the intricate metal work spans 64m.

The Swing Bridge is closed at present for essential maintenance work .

Both of the images were captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Standing next to Ramsey Swing Bridge and looking towards the upper section of Ramsey inner Harbour where there was once a call to make this section of the harbour a Marina!

I caprtued this image today whilst in Ramsey, it generally depicts Ramsey’s Swing Bridge but if you look at the image you will see a few iconic landmarks from the North of the Isle of Man.

To the left of the image you can see St Pauls apartments which are the highest apartments on the Island, next to it is the beautiful St Paul’s Church.

In the centre of the image you can see Albert Tower which was erected to commemorate the visit to Ramsey of Prince Albert in September 1847, when he randomly walked up that hill on his visit to overview the town.

To the top right of the image you can see the second largest mountain on the island “North Barrule”
