The Bridge over the River Crouch

Isabel Johnson's Ramsden Bellhouse and Heath Collection

Church Road in Ramsden Bellhouse was much lower than it is now and frequently flooded. Pedestrians had to use a wooden footbridge to cross it and this was often wet and very slippery. In 1939 the road was raised to its present height and a new bridge was built. During its construction traffic was diverted through the two fields on the eastern side of the road, where a temporary bridge had been built.
