Ashford in the Water 3/4

A stroll around the village will be rewarded with many things of interest to see, not least of which is the distinctive, and possibly unique, Sheepwash Bridge. This scheduled ancient monument is identified by the gated stone sheepfold built into the bridge on the South side of the river,which was used when local farmers washed their sheep in the river,a practice which continued into the 1960’s.

An historical feature
Brian Walbey: Indeed, tomorrows picture shows where it fits in the scheme of things.
Who knew that farmers washed their sheep! Of course they must have to use cold water. smile
Brian Walbey: Tomorrows picture gives more idea as to how the sheep dipping worked.

A beautiful view down the river with the weeping willow. I do believe I have sat here and dangled my feet in the river.
Brian Walbey: it is a nice spot, we sat on a seat under those trees for a while.
What happened to 1 and 2 Brian
Brian Walbey: Last weekend, you commented on them both, they must have been easily forgetable smile
