SU1414 : George Inn and Avon Bridge, Fordingbridge, Hampshire

taken 66 years ago, near to Fordingbridge, Hampshire, Great Britain

George Inn and Avon Bridge, Fordingbridge, Hampshire.
George Inn and Avon Bridge, Fordingbridge, Hampshire.
This splendid stone bridge across the River Avon was photographed in 1951, when it still carried the A338 trunk road. However, a bypass with a new bridge has been constructed to the east, so that the bridge is again much quieter. If anyone is contemplating a visit to Fordingbridge, they may like to know that the George Inn, seen here across the river, is still open and serving excellent beer as indeed it did in 1951.
