The stepping stones over the River Goyt look very precarious. Especially for the young child crossing over. The footbridge on the left looks a far safer bet. But nowhere near as exciting!
The gypsy caravan appears in a number of other photos, including ones taken during a holiday in the early 1930s. And there’s also a brief glimpse in the 1932 cine film.
In the far distance it’s just possible to make out the roof of Goyt’s Bridge School. Gatehouse Cottage is hidden behind the trees on the right.
The photo below was shot from the other side of the stepping stones, and must have been taken at a similar time (click to enlarge). It’s from the page on the packhorse bridge.
