This is a picture of Bedford Embankment looking across the river Great Ouse towards the main town bridge. A very knowledgeable U3A member has noticed that this picture was not taken recently. Anybody else know why? The answer: if you look above the roof of the red brick building you will see the top of the Town Hall which was demolished in 2014. The photo was taken in 2013.
