Pulteney Bridge, like the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy, is one of only a few historic bridges in the world with shops built into it. Although architecturally dissimilar (the Ponte Vecchio is Medieval; the Pulteney Bridge is Georgian), the Pulteney Bridge, like the Ponte Vecchio, is notably beautiful and romantic.
Just down stream from the bridge is a crescent weir. The barrier allows water to flow over the top, but prevents easy river navigation. I wanted to see if this boat could continue up, but it only seemed to fight the current, taking advantage of its unique position on the river.
