River Goyt at Howard Street Bridge
The last bridge over the river Goyt is Howard Street bridge. A small island has built up between the flow through the two arches. A man can be seen on the island but how he managed to gain access I couldn't say.
Someone had tweeted earlier that day, "Why is the Goyt orange this morning?" A few hours later I took several photos of the river here. I posted three of them yesterday. The river as can be seen from this closer crop is indeed coloured orange. It is probably due a seepage or iron ore but where from I don't know and I've not seen news reports about it.
I do not know how this man, with an e-cigarette in his mouth, got onto the island nor what he is collecting in the plastic bag.
