Alphabet Bridge

Sometimes you can find letters of the alphabet in the most unexpected places, such as in this rail bridge crossing the River Severn in Shrewsbury. What can you see?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. It’s really ugly until you stop and look at all the lines and shapes in its construction and then it becomes interesting.

        1. I saw the X and N straight away, but when you study the structure lots more appear. Fascinating! Glad you like it Andy 🙂

  1. I can see some Xs, Ns, Vs and a couple of Ws (where two Vs cross) on the metal parts of the bridge and an M formed by the main pillars which are holding the bridge up. Are there Ks lying on their sides along the top?
    If you hadn’t asked us to look, it would never have occurred to me to look for letters here!

    1. You HAVE done well! I think you have found pretty much all of the ones I can see, I do have another one or two, though one is a bit of a long shot!

    1. I hadn’t seen the E, F and H but now they are obvious. Struggling with the B and D though, and I apologise for the lack of a G. No J either so don’t feel too bad 😉
