Clattern Bridge
Clattern Bridge
Clattern Bridge is a scheduled ancient monument and dates back to 1293. The bridge that crosses the tiny tributary of Hogsmill is one of the oldest recorded bridges in the south of England and is of particular historical and architectural interest. The medieval name ‘Claterynbrugge’ is thought to have been descriptive of the sound of Horses crossing the bridge on the way to the busy Kingston Marketplace. The stone arches on the downstream section of the bridge are the oldest part of the bridge which until Victorian times was only 8 feet wide.
