Crockford Bridge
 
 
 

Situated between Brighton and New Haw Roads, the present structure replaced a narrow, rutted bridge with wooden-railed sides. The new bridge also straightened the direction of the road, covering the watersplash (ford) previously there; indeed, Crockford may mean "crooked ford". Some kind of bridge must have existed here since 1666 because records state that Henrietta Maria, widow of Charles I and Lady of the Manor, was liable for its repair in that year.
