A History of YALDING, Kent, England


These views show top left an early picture of rising water with the Anchor Inn to the top left, and the lock-keepers cottage at the end of the bridge, to the right.

Shown top right is the bridge during the 1980 refurbishment, with bailey bridge and canoeists visible through the arch.

Bottom left is a typical summer Sunday, with both the car-park and river full of visitors, as has been the scene since the mid twentieth century.

The bridge has been abused by heavy traffic with the inner curve of the wall constantly being knocked into the river. The bottom right picture shows a new outer wall that was added in September 2008 to ease this happening again.
