No 148. Ham Bridge

This bridge over the New Cut at Old Windsor Lock gives access to Ham Island and the waterworks situated there and has a headroom of 14’3”.   Old Windsor was originally a small village of the 9th century surrounding a Saxon royal palace, this no doubt fell into disuse after the construction of Windsor Castle by William the Conqueror and no trace of it now remains.   The main attraction of Old Windsor now is its pretty 13th century church. This view is looking upstream from the entrance to Old Windsor Lock.
