The Duke of Northumberland River at The Two Bridges
The Duke of Northumberland River at The Two Bridges
This western section of the Duke of Northumberland's River was constructed during the reign of King Henry VIIIth. It takes water from the River Colne and was designed to supplement the flow to existing mills. Here it is seen from Hatton Road.

The Two Bridges is so-named because Hatton Road also crosses the Longford River just to the right of here. Charles I ordered the construction of the totally artificial watercourse known as the Longford River to carry water from the River Colne to the water features in Bushy Park and then on to the Long Water in Home Park at Hampton Court. The Longford River opened in 1638.

To the west of the A30 and south of Heathrow Airport and its Southern Perimeter Road, the two waterways run parallel and it is possible to follow a track between them. There they are known as the Twin Rivers.
