Stopham Bridge
Stopham Bridge
There was a ford at this point since Saxon times which was replaced by a wooden bridge in 1309. This in turn was replaced by a stone bridge in 1423 which remained in use until 1986 when a new road bridge was opened. This view looks towards the centre from the eastern side, raised in 1822 to allow masted vessels to access the Arun-Wey navigation.
