Clattern Bridge - Kingston upon Thames


Kingston upon Thames, United Kingdom (GB)
The Clattern Bridge, dating from the 13th century, is the oldest working bridge in the county of Surrey. The bridge is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument with the name believed to be derived from the clattering of hooves as they crossed the bridge that spans the Hogsmill River, a tributary of the River Thames. A blue plaque is located on the north west side of the bridge with that side of the bridge being the oldest part, being only 8 feet wide until it was widened in the nineteenth century.
