Apologies for the delay.


I know this pic very well, and whilst the bridge over the stream/river still survives, it has been altered due to increased traffic requiring the road to be widened. The small 'fenced' area to one side was originally a small ford, itself possibly harking back to a time before the bridge was built in the eighteenth century. Many other similar bridges across other small rivers and streams in the area appeared to follow suit (Littlebourne, Bridge, Barham, Patrixbourne, Bekesbourne to name a few), some of which still possess fords in their back lanes. These lanes are usually temporarily closed during the winter as some of the streams are seasonal such as the Nailbourne as it passes up the upper reaches of the Elham Valley. However, the Wingham 'River' flows permanently and starts in a series of natural springs towards the east of Wingham.


Here is my next, which despite looking like a typical rural scene, has a twist in its tail. This might not last too long either?

Thanks Grandarog.  As you've probably guessed my GTP was taken from a section of that postcard.  Would be a good buy for anyone with Wingham connections.

That's it CAT.  I never knew the Wingham 'River' had a name until this view cropped up.  It's only trickle - hardly a river :D


Over to you ...

That would be the bridge in Bridge Street over the Wingham River that flows into the Little Stour at Wingham?

This river is a tributary of another tributary. The cottages still remain and can be seen on GSV.

Not on the Nailbourne CAT and not Shoreham Pete.


It is a named river that runs under that bridge.
