River Deep by naturelover

The Whitemill Packhorse Bridge over the River Stour taken today in Sturminster Marshall,Dorset., 30th Jan shows the waters are still running high, but it is at least sunny,dry and mild and feels like Spring is almost here.
There are documentary references to the building of “A Bridge on the River Stour adjacent to the White Mill” in the year 1175. Although the bridge we see today is probably a sixteenth century structure (somewhat hacked around by the Victorians) we know, from an investigation of the foundations a few years ago, that it stands on timber pilings which have themselves been carbon dated to the twelfth century. This is alleged to be the oldest bridge site in Dorset
