Description
Bideford Bridge' Hand pressed linocut print Limited edition of 25 prints A3, heavy white 300gsm Snowdon paper Bideford Bridge - The (mystrerious) History This carving is of my favourite local landmark, Bideford (old) bridge. I have always loved the bridge and as a child heard the story of why the arches are all of different sizes. The story I heard is that when the bridge was built in stone over it's previous wooden version in the 14th century, the building of the bridge was paid for in contributions from local businesses. The more money an individual business put into the pot, the bigger their arch.
Try it!
