Whitchurch Bridge, River Thames
Whitchurch Bridge, River Thames
The River Thames was fordable at this pint for many years, but after the construction of a pound lock in 1787 this was no longer the case, and the first bridge was built by private subscription, opening in 1793. It was replaced in 1852 after it failed, and again by the present iron structure in 1901. It remains as one of only two toll bridges over the non-tidal Thames, and, wisely, money from the tolls is set aside each year for possible rebuilding when needed.
