Under The Bridge 2

These arcane markings can be found just outside Bathampton under a bridge across the Kennet & Avon Canal. I guess they were left by the builders, but I'm not certain?

Along with these markings, there's also some very old graffiti which I'll post shortly.

I walk past these virtually every day Dave, living in Bathampton as I do: I think they are mason's marks
Dave Carrington: Hi, Chris. You live in a fine part of the World! We spent a pleasant hour or so last Sunday sat outside The George after a picnic on the canal. Oh, to be in England, wot? smile

It's fascinating to see things like this, and to wonder why ... It's unusual to see so many so close together
Dave Carrington: Agreed, Ellie. There's a wealth of history & great shots to be had under one small bridge... smile
What interesting marks. I used to give lectures on construction as part of a landscape architecture degree programme, but I haven't a clue what these might be about.
Dave Carrington: Nor me, Ian, but I would guess they were left by the builders?

this is a great discovery Dave, ancient Hieroglyphs from primitive stone age builders! I recon that the XX was an order for a bacon butty with 2 eggs and the inverted triangle was an order for a full English! Not sure what the H is though, it could be for "Heart" whereby he got a Half measure of full English with salad - for health reasons of course! hehe

Love the tones and textures here.

Dave Carrington: I favour the complex language of a dead race of white haired Pygmies that foretells the end of Civilisation on November 11th... smile
