All these river crossings must keep the Council's surveyor and bridge-master busy!

Nice shot , Ron!

What was bottled in Bottling woods.

I read somewhere that it might have
been a corruption of battling wood..
it's certainly worth a read on it's history.

Great shot, lovely contrasting colours and the lines of trees and fences draw your eyes around the picture. There is an old bell pit up the brew on the far side. Believe Bottling comes from the Norman name Bottelier...modern day Butler.

Maureen - "Battling" could be a connection to the Civil War - Roundheads and Cavaliers!
