The Bridges of Dee

Cover of the book 'The Bridges of Dee'

Come with me as I travel the valley from above Llyn Tegid to the sea, and share my discovery of sturdy bridges, beautiful bridges, mysterious bridges.

The Dee valley is a visual delight, an artist's paradise that I thought I knew well. But this enterprise took me to unfrequented places where 300 year old bridges still maintain vital crossing points for the rural communities, while better known structures provide their own surprises.

There are 41 bridges over the Dee and I set myself the task of painting every one of them - well, I wanted to improve my compositional skills, didn't I? Painting notes accompany every picture in the the book so that you can work beside me as I go - and it seemed worthwhile to research the stories and legends of the bridges and the surrounding countryside and share them with you, too.

Appropriately for a book about bridges over the Dee, it has been printed in Wales by Gomer Press Ltd, a company specialising in books of photography and fine art.
