Shillingford Bridge repairs

The summer issue of Thames Guardian, the River Thames Society‘s magazine, has a

reminder that  Shillingford Bridge is being restored this summer.

The Thames Path runs up the side of the bridge when it leaves the towpath to pass

through the hamlet.

Stonemasons are working on the bridge’s arches and attractive parapet which means that

pontoons and scaffolding are being used.

The bridge was completed in 1827 to succeed several timber crossings on the line of

the old Shilling ford.
