This is one of the most famous landmarks in Duplin! Ha'ppeny Bridge leads to temple bar and it is lovely to cross! It is beautiful to have a stroll during evening/night as the reflections of the bridge/lights/building over the river is beautiful!

Like a typical tourist I probably expected too much. It was just a tiny random bridge. I probably would have missed it amongst other better and older looking bridges of someone didn’t point it out to me. 👎🏻
