Bridge in Fordwich, Canterbury

I often go out with David on Sundays.
Yesterday I went to a little village called Fordwich about 2 miles from Canterbury.
It is one of the loveliest places around here and if it wasn't for the amount of cars around, I would say it is like travelling in time.
I took quite a few pictures that I was very happy with and this is one of them.
The bridge you see in the picture is very old and very narrow with room for one car only. The river is the same one you have seen a few times in my blog: River Stour.

You are welocme.

Canterbury is surrounded by lovely countryside and I love it.

Oh Petrea...I wish. You have been invited...

I recently found info at the Dover archives that my great(x6)-grandfather may have built this bridge. Unfortunately when I travelled there last week, the inscription on the bridge is unreadable. Does anybody know what it used to say?
