River Arun: Stopham Bridge
River Arun: Stopham Bridge
Stopham Bridge was built across the River Arun in 1442 to replace a wooden bridge from the early 1300s. This earlier bridge was constructed on the site of an old ford crossing the river. The central arch of the bridge, although not the central arch over the river, was raised in 1822 to allow masted ships access to and from the Arun Navigation and the Wey and Arun Canal further upriver. Motor traffic now uses a new bridge TQ0218 : River Arun: A283 Stopham Road bridge.
