TQ2649 :: Bridge to nowhere

Bridge to nowhere by Ian Capper
Bridge to nowhere

Ornate bridge over a footpath linking Cronks Hill Road and High Trees Road. It is owned by Dunottar School, an independent school which in 1933 moved into "High Trees", built by Walter Blanford Waterlow in 1867, the grounds of which are on the right of this photo. The footbridge is not marked on the 1871-2 1:2,500 map but is shown as an addition to the grounds of the house on the 1896 edition, linking them to empty land to the east, since developed as the houses on the south side of High Trees Road, hence the footbridge now leading to nowhere.
