The Ponte della Maddalena is the most recognisable structure in our area. It is a 900 year old treasure.
It is possible to see in this photo some of the build up of debris on the buttresses of the bridge. We have had lots of rain over the last 12 months and the river has been carrying lots of rubbish along with it and quite a bit has gathered around the base of the bridge.
Finally, the clean up has begun. The river has been diverted and the tree branches and other bits and pieces are being removed.
It is good to see the Ponte della Maddalena being looked after. I never tire of looking at this amazing bridge every time I pass. I often stop and walk across and enjoy the view from the top as well. Let’s hope it is here for another 900 years.
Francis has written about the clean up too on his blog. Click here to see his report.
