The original bridge was built in the thirteenth or fourteenth century to replace the ford which gave the village its name. It was built of burnt brick, cemented together with mortar, made of bitumen, that it might not be liable to admit water. His father died inleaving Aubrey large estates, but with them some complicated debts. Only in the s did the full breadth and innovation of his scholarship begin to be more widely appreciated.
