Photographer Notes:
The Bridge is also known as a suicide bridge. Between 1974 and 1993, 127 people fell to their deaths from the bridge. Now fences are really high, there are cameras everywhere and in order to fit into the age of mobile phones old SOS phone lines are replaced by plaques displaying the number of Samaritan's care that is waiting for your call day and night. So, if you have suicidal tendencies you better find some other high point in Bristol ;)

Thanks for the write up with the background material regarding this area in Bristol! Good that the number of deaths has been stopped in this area and that there is now help for those who need it! Congratulations on your win today!
