Warfield: Bott Bridge
Warfield: Bott Bridge
Bott Bridge, with the white railings, carries the A3095 road over The Cut. On the right is the B3034 Forest Road, while in the distance, but in the next grid square to the east, is SU8771 : Warfield: Three Legged Cross. Quoting from Warfield Parish Council's Heritage Trail booklet it says "Bott Bridge is often referred to as Battle Bridge probably on the basis that as the village is called Warfield there must have been a battle somewhere! The more likely explanation is that the road was an extension of Bottle Lane. The first brick bridge was built in 1802 at a cost 163. At the time this was a large sum which had to be found from the Parish Purse. The original brick bridge was replaced in the 1930s."
