One website drops you into Google streetview somewhere on earth and you have to work out where and mark the spot on a world map.

Takes detective work to find the answer sometimes, but if you get within 50 metres of your start point you have done well.

Jerry.

Dunkerque, Bénouville Bridge est non.

The Edgerton - Morpeth passage Bascule bridge was restored over twenty years ago but it has not worked since nor does the Dock Pub exist any more; ah, I see on re-reading the reply that I was confusing the Bascule bridge between Edgerton and the East Float - that one was removed so long ago that I had all but forgotten about it. This image was take just over a year ago though.

The Duke Street Bridge is not part of the "Four Bridges"

The term "Great Float" has never been used in my life time, it is either the East or West Float.

"Tower"? Erm, never known as that as far as I know, a letter of the Alphabet will suffice.
