Lorton Low Bridge
Lorton Low Bridge
Lorton Low Bridge was swept away in the floods of November 2009. It was a twin-arched stone bridge with a central pier in the river, and was Grade II listed. Almost exactly a year ago, I took a photo of the construction works for the new bridge - see NY1525 : Lorton Low Bridge. (Note that that photo is facing in the opposite direction.)
Now this fine new bridge is in place. For obvious reasons no attempt was made to follow the original design, but this single arch span should present little obstruction to any future floods, and so (I hope) ensure its survival for many years to come.
