Footbridge to rear of Nos. 52 and 54, The Grove, Upminster - Havering

Footbridge and eye-catcher, circa 1765, probably by James Paine who laid out the estate of Gaynes Park in the 1760s for Sir James Esdaile, Lord Mayor of London 1777-78. Erection of fencing on the bridge has seriously damaged the structure. Extensive vegetation growth is further threatening its stability. Some structural repairs have been carried out in the past but further works are urgently required.
