The Windle Brook (a stream) passes
through the village. This is the present bridge where Bridge Road
passes over the stream. Before the bypass road was built all the traffic
on the main London - West Country road passed over here.
When the photo was taken the stream bed was rather
clogged with water weeds!
Compare the present bridge with the one in the lower
photograph, which was taken about 100 years ago.
In addition to the bridge there is also a ford with
stepping stones in the foreground. Why anyone would use the
stepping stones rather that the bridge I have no idea.
