About This Image

The packhorse bridge at Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire, England provides a lovely view of the river. They used to wash sheep here many years ago.

Thanks for that info Mike. Yes England was a lovely place for a holiday, not sure about living there though!

It was originally a medieval packhorse bridge and it is only until recently, that sheep were wahed here prior to shearing. The lambs would be penned within the stone-walled pen on one side of the river, whilst the mothers would be thrown in at the other side. They would naturally swim across to their offspring, thus ensuring a good soaking. glad you liked england john sorry about the rain

Thanks Steve, unfortunately our time in Derbyshire was very rainy and damp. Still a beautiful part of England though.
