The Pantile Bridge, Hampton Hill
The Pantile Bridge, Hampton Hill
A view of the Pantile Bridge in Hampton Hill taken in glorious black and white in the winter of 1974/75. The bridge takes the A311 over the Longford River where it flows into Bushy Park.

I remember this view very well, as it is where I waited for my No.267 bus to school from 1968 until 1975. (The buses weren't quite as infrequent as this last comment seems to suggest, although sometimes it felt like it!).

If anybody looking at this picture has a copy of "The birth and growth of Hampton Hill" edited by Margery Orton and published in 1965, they might like to compare this with the 1890s picture facing page 54. to the right of the bridge was a 'watersplash', and some of the trees are still recognisable 80 years on.
