I WAS UNAWARE OF THIS BRIDGE UNTIL TODAY
I used a 25mm Zeiss Batis lens and there was a problem as many images had a purple area near the centre especially when stone walls appeared in the frame this was not what is known as “purple fringing”.
Bond Bridge is a fine rubble stone bridge that forms an imposing feature on the Royal Canal and is one of a group of bridges on the section of that canal that passes through County Kildare. The construction of the arch that has retained its original shape is of technical and engineering merit. The bridge exhibits good quality stone masonry and fine, crisp joints. The bridge is of considerable historical and social significance as a reminder of the canal network development in Ireland, which brought about many technical advances and developed commercial activity in Maynooth in the late eighteenth/early nineteenth centuries.
