SHEFFIELD - Ladysbridge
The bridge carries a street called the Wicker where, as they say in these here parts, "t'water goes o'er t'weir". It was the time of the Great Sheffield Flood of 2007 so the weir wasn't visible and the arches in the bridge were only just high enough to contain the River Don. I've been in Sheffield 48 years and that was the worse flood... by far.
