Kingston Bridge, River Thames
Kingston Bridge, River Thames
There has been a bridge of some sort here ever since the 13th century. Various wooden bridges existed for many years. A ducking stool for witches was used from the bridge, one of the last recorded cases of ducking being that of the landlady of the King's Head, on 17 April 1745.
In 1828 the first stone bridge was built and was widened in 1914. This is the bridge as photographed in 1974. It has been widened again in 2001 but with little overall change in appearance.
