Roman Bridge, Jersey Road, Osterley Park - Hounslow

Rusticated and stone-faced bridge with one segmental arch and flanking pairs of rusticated Doric half columns, dating from 1780, by Robert Adam. The bridge is severed from the historic park by the M4 and straddles the borough boundary between Ealing and Hounslow. It is in need of considerable repair and consolidation, and is subject to heritage crime. Vegetation and redundancy are key threats to address. Historic England has re-opened discussions with agents for the owner in order to secure the future of this asset.
