The Ford near Chobham
This has to be one of the most unusual fords ever. Rather than simply crossing the road, the stream flows along the lane for nearly 200 yards. Once a well-used thoroughfare, the stream has gradually scoured away the track and although the highways authority has tried to repair the situation by dumping thousands of tons of gravel to level out the stream bed, it has now admitted defeat and has closed the road to traffic. Horses (cyclists and walkers, too, if they should feel so foolhardy) are still allowed to use it though.
