Clarendon Arch, Bush Hill, London N21
Clarendon Arch is a barrel vaulted tunnel which carries the water from Salmon’s Brook below Bush Hill. The Brook’s source is near Hadley Wood on the Hertfordshire boundary from where it flows eastward below the New River, on the opposite side of Bush Hill and finally meets the River Lea at Edmonton.
Originally the brook was spanned by a bridge and the “Bush Hill Frame”. This “Frame” was constructed between 1608 and 1613.
In 1682 the bridge was replaced by an arch named after the then Governor of the New River Company, the Earl of Clarendon. This was commemorated by a carved ornamental keystone with an inscription.
The arch was again rebuilt in 1725 and is now a statutory listed Grade II structure.
