Stratford Bridge, over the River Stour
Stratford Bridge, over the River Stour
This is the view down the River Stour from the old bridge, looking at the A12 Stratford St Mary bypass. The river here is the boundary between Essex (right) and Suffolk (left).
The A12 carries a heavy load of container traffic to and from the port of Felixstowe and the lorry crossing has almost certainly come from there.
A12 Road
The A12 is a 129 mile long trunk road from London to Great Yarmouth. It runs through Greater London, Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk. It passes by Brentwood, Colchester and Ipswich as well as passing through Lowestoft.

Stratford St Mary :: TM0434
Stratford St Mary (the ford of the Roman Via Strata) sits on the Suffolk/Essex border on the River Stour, in Suffolk, just off the A12 between Colchester and Ipswich. The village has a fifteenth-century flint faced church which is situated on the other side of the A12. It is also served by a primary school, post office and village store, and three pubs.

It is in the heart of 'Constable Country'; John Constable painted a number of paintings in and around Stratford.
