Eashing Bridge, 1898


The old double stone bridge spanning the river Wey at Eashing was probably built in the thirteenth century. John Janaway suggests the builders could have been the monks of Waverley Abbey[1].

It was given to the National Trust in 1901, after top picture was taken. The modern National Trust sign near the bridge refers to it as Eashing Bridges.
