Old Culham Bridge


Culham bridge used to be part of the old road that ran from  Abingdon and was once a toll bridge (the tollhouse is still there). The bridge spans a cut called swift ditch which is made to bypass Abingdons shallows.





You can see this plaque on the bridge










This is looking across the bridge to the toll house

    1. Yes it does, no doubt helped by the fact it does not get traffic now.

  5. I love these old stone bridges and the history behind them. We don't seem to have any in Western Australia, mostly they are in Tasmania. But my posts lately seem to have a lot of history in them.
    Have a wonderful week. I am linking up to you through Our World Tuesday.

  9. Your photos just make me want to go travel your neck of the woods. One of these days. A civil war skirmish in 1645. That changes my thoughts about equating civil wars only with our North vs. South in the 1860s.
