    That's a great new word you've coined there, I shall try and use it as much as possible!

    Re children having access to the water, in two circumnavigations of UK I was struck by the lack of children playing on the foreshore. Only exception was highly organised and supervised dinghy sailing open only to those with money. I grew up on the Moray Firth and we as kids aost lived on the foreshore! Now that is perceived as too dangerous, not like playing xbox! Times change.
    If you think it's tough at the top---try being at the bottom!

    That is unusual. I have been mocked as a Mong because I use a wheelchair but never before because I am dislexic!

    Yes it is so sad access to the water is so restricted now. All my kids and grandchildren can swim and sail but it is so difficult for them to get on the river without paying a fortune.

    It wasn't my intention to be mocking - I think describing children as being "mollycuddled" is so much more descriptive than "mollycoddled". I'm sure there is a word for that kind of misspelling, where the result is better than the original. A kind of cross between a cacography (yes I had to look that one up) and a malapropism.

    Anyway, back to your bridges...

    Now access into Shotley has a Toll it seems, where once there was free access

    Whilst it was always free to get, you had to pay to leave!
