Waterside countdown: 5. Chertsey Meads

Waterside countdown number 5

Welcome to the sixth in my series of pictorial guides. This time I’m showcasing my top ten favourite waterside viewpoints, selected from our ‘Greenspace on your doorstep’ directory.

At number 5 is Chertsey Meads in Surrey…

This is a view of Chertsey Bridge from the Thameside bank of Chertsey Meads.

The bridge is a Grade 2 listed building. Made of white-stone, with seven arches, it opened in 1785 and replaced a wooden bridge that had spanned the River Thames since 1410.

For directions, information and more photographs, go to the Chertsey Meads entry in ‘Greenspace on your doorstep’.
