Love locks and romance

The River Wye in Bakewell - and some locks

After our walk today we nipped into nearby Bakewell for a coffee. One of the bridges over the River Wye has become encrusted with love locks. As you probably know, couples buy a cheap padlock, stick their initials on it, lock it into place and chuck the keys in the river. It is supposed to be romantic. More romantic than a quick knee-trembler I suppose, but not much.

Where there's fuck, there's brass.

All those cheap locks weigh about a quarter of a pound.

C'maaaan structural engineers, work it out!

Splash, and then on TV for a day or so...

Might the money be better spent on chastity belts?

Sam - damn, I wish I'd though of that.

Scrobs - do we have enough structural engineers to go round? Perhaps a few sociologists will have to do instead.

Demetrius - maybe, but throwing away the key doesn't sound like a good move.
