Stopham Bridge on the Arun, Sussex. Photograph by Gertrude Jekyll from Old English Household Life, p. 194. According to Jekyll,

The large bridge at Stopham, in Sussex, over the Arun, a few miles north of Arundel, . . . gains in its appearance of importance from the high central arch, so built to allow the passage of loaded hay barges, and from the small bastion-like projections that come over the pier, for the safety of foot passengers on the narrow road. [192]
