The Richmond Bridge, built in 1823, is the oldest bridge in Australia still in use. Situated in Richmond, Tasmania, roughly 25kms from the state capital, Hobart, the Richmond Bridge spans the Coal River in the heart of a region known for it's boutique wineries, history, and beauty.

The bridge was built by convict labour and, like much of Tasmanian convict history, the bridge is shrouded in tales of hardship, tragedy, an restless spirits.

It is said that the Richmond Bridge is haunted by the ghost of the vicious flagellator, George Grover, who was beaten to death by convict workers and thrown into the river during construction. ( No apparitions were actually captured on CF card on the day of shooting but strange symbols may have briefly appeared on the LCD screen. . . 8) )

VR artist's comment
"Why is it that whenever you pre-plan a shot the day you arrive to shoot the subject (read: bridge) the nice council workers are always digging a ditch or doing some construction on the well-lit side of the subject (read: bridge)"?
