River Pinn and the Robbie Bell Bridge
River Pinn and the Robbie Bell Bridge
The Robbie Bell Bridge carries Pield Heath Road over the River Pinn and links Cowley with Colham Green. There is a plaque on the north side of the bridge that reads:

COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX

TAKE NOTICE
that this bridge (which is a county bridge) is insufficient to carry weights
beyond the ordinary traffic of the district and that owners and
persons in charge of locomotive traction engines and heavily laden carriages
are warned against using the bridge for the passage of any such engines or carriages

Richard Nicholson
Clerk of the Peace

A correspondent informs me that Robbie Bell was a young boy who very sadly died here after being hit by a car while crossing Pield Heath Road around 1990.

Note the Environment Agency water level gauge board on the left of the river.
