Footbridge over Bully Brook

Grid reference 078424. Footbridge over Bully Brook on former footpath from Sands Lane to Pear Tree Corner. Formed out of 4ft diameter concrete drain section. Metal railings. Locally known as Waterfall bridge, the original stone bridge formed a dam to create a small pond for cattle to drink from. Water then flowed over the dam to resemble a waterfall. Mike Hewlett, pictured here, has fond memories of the bridge as a child when he used to walk over it every day to take his grandfather his tea: "A wonderful place, very peaceful, I often used to sit at the water's edge; but it's all gone to rack and ruin now and been altered."
