  Gateshead Millenium Bridge
by sandysmith

Steve was very keen to stress that this is the GATESHEAD Millenium Bridge - not just the Millenium Bridge or that "Blinking Bridge" in Newcastle. So called as this world's first tilting bridge its designed to resemble a blinking eyelid when raised to permit ships to pass beneath. Unfortunately it wasn't in operation the day we were here :-(
