I've only just realised that the bridge sits over a new bit of the river. Originally it curved over to the right and then back again.

Rich Edward has just posted this interesting river image on FB from 1956 from Priory Street.

Wow, part of my playground as a kid. If you enlarge the pic you can make out the dam which you would lower into the river to raise the water level for fire engines to use. Just in front are two concrete blocks with slots in. Planks could be dropped into the slots also to dam the river. Pic taken on a bad day I think. When there was heavy rain the Sherbourne would be a raging torrent. It would be a couple of days before we could play in it again but all the rubbish would have washed away Thumbs up Edited by member, 25th Mar 2021 4:01 pm

When was this photo taken? I've never seen this view of the river.

Thanks for that information. Where would I go to see that bridge or am I too late?

Thankyou, Midland Red, for the map. I hope to be able to visit Cov. at the end of the year and I'll make an effort to go to the bridge. When we was using the buses in the Cov. area in the 60's we called them the Midland Dred as we could never organize ourselves with their timing.
