I strolled down to Leven Bridge to retake the photograph as requested by one of your contributors, I also photographed the ‘Cross Keys’ as was, it is now a house, the two buildings to the right of the ‘Cross Keys’ are also homes and the rightmost building is an estate agents.
As you can see the shot was taken from a similar position as the original but I was unable to get to the exact place as there is now a fenced off area with young trees growing there, the trees and bushes along side the weir have grown up in the last 60 years and it is nigh on impossible to get a view of the river or the houses on the other bank, also, the river authority have fenced off the weir on both sides of the river and there is no access to the riverside at all, the field on the other side of the bridge has no sheds or railway carriages but is otherwise very much the same. The wood and wire fence that had the bike leaning against it is still there, the fence that is not the bike! The fence is in such a rickety condition it may well be the same one as in the original photograph.
