Bridges near Cape St Francis

Bridges near Cape St Francis

Van Staden’s is famous for the number of people who suicide off it. Unfortunately, with the sun shining on the bridge, you can’t see the rail that has been put up to discourage the practice.


The old bridge is still functional. I drove over it to take the photos, then walked around to the old “drift” I’m guessing the one the pioneers used…imagine pulling their wagons over this terrain!

I didn’t used to be that interested in architecture, but married to an engineer, I guess it grows on one!
