    Whitemill Bridge - There are documentary references to this bridge over the Stour in the year 1175, although the bridge we see today is probably a sixteenth century structure, but the timber piling foundations themselves have been carbon dated to the twelfth century. It is alleged to be the oldest bridge site in Dorset.

      That amused me when I saw an identical plaque on Grey's Bridge at Dorchester.
      I've since seen Mr Fooks' name on a few of our county bridges and kicks have never worked for me either!
