The Windle Brook (a stream)
passes through the village. This is the present bridge where Bridge Road
passes over the stream. Before the bypass road was built all the traffic
on the main London - West Country road passed over here.
When the photo was taken the stream bed was rather clogged with water weeds!
Compare the present bridge with the one in the lower photograph, which was
taken about 100 years ago.
In addition to the bridge there is also a ford with stepping stones in the
foreground. Why anyone would use the stepping stones rather that the
bridge I have no idea.
