Sorry, I've taken a bit of a liberty here. I do have a photo, but it can't show the operation.I think that sort of bridge is called a pontoon bridge.
For anyone interested, there is good long term parking just north and water and toilets at the marina just down the road. Not to mention some good fairly secluded beaches.
My abiding memory of the bridge is seeing the captain of a "superyacht" try to bully the navy officer operating the bridge into opening it at a time when it was closed to shipping. He was told in no uncertain terms when the bridge would open and not before. After almost ramming the bridge in his anger and frustration, the yacht was reversed and anchored until the appointed time, (a wait of almost an hour). Until then the air was punctuated at intervals by curses from the yacht and equally fruity replies from the operator, all conducted via loud hailers.
