Weybridge: The Old Wey Bridge
Weybridge: The Old Wey Bridge
The Surrey County Council plaque on the bridge states:-

"This Grade II Listed three-span cast iron bridge was built in 1865 to the design of C H Howell, County Surveyor of Surrey. It replaced an 1808 thirteen span wooden bridge. The foundry name of Hennet, Spink and Else is displayed on the crown of each arch beam. The words "Joseph Hamblet, Oldbury, near Birmingham, 1865" are impressed in bricks forming the parapet wall. The first reference to a bridge at this site was in a document of 675AD relating to Chertsey Abbey. It was from a bridge such as this that the name Weybridge was derived."

As can be seen traffic on the bridge is reduced to one-way working with a weight limit of 7.5 tons and a width limit of 7' 0".
