Photographer's Note

The original wooden Toll Bridge across the River Adur at Shoreham-by-Sea was built in 1781. The current bridge (rebuilt in 1916) was constructed to a similar design.

The London Brighton and South Coast Railway Company bought the bridge in 1861, following construction of the branch line from Shoreham to Steyning and onto Horsham. Various railway companies, finally British Rail, continued to collect the tolls for the bridge until it was replaced by the modern flyover, opened in 1970.

Today, it is undergoing reconstruction, but still manages to provide a peaceful pedestrian crossing across the river on a warm autumn afternoon.
