SU9654 : Fox Corner: Bullswater Bridge

taken 10 years ago, near to Fox Corner, Surrey, Great Britain

Fox Corner: Bullswater Bridge
Fox Corner: Bullswater Bridge
According to the stone tablet in its parapet Bullswater Bridge was built in 1923 by Guildford Rural District Council to carry the B380 Guildford Road over Hodge Brook. This brook drains eastwards from Bullswater Common and is a tributary of Stanford Brook.
Further information provided by landowner:
The two streams are kept separate on the north side of the bridge by the brick built design itself. Therefore it is not a confluence at this point. The bridge design has the middle arch for an overflow channel as necessary. There was evidence of silt build up at the time the photograph was taken because there had been a massive village flood a year earlier and the land was still recovering. The silt visible on the photo bears no reflection on the normal situation pertaining to the years before and the years after.
