Lingcove Bridge

Lingcove Bridge

It is in a pool just downstream from this bridge that Sherpa Tenzing Norgay - conqueror of Everest - is reputed to have lost his teeth. He was keen to cool off in the pool; but it was so cold when he jumped in, that he gasped with shock and his false teeth shot out. They have never been recovered. Smaller version of this picture.
