Sent in by Andy Kelly (15/06/2009)

'It is located down a single track tarmac lane that ends at the ford with a small Irish bridge. The other side of the ford reverts to a track. The ford is easily navigable but there was no turning spot, so I had to reverse back through and up the lane.'

'In summer possibly suitable for most, but at other times a 4x4 recommended. Overgrown, went through after heavy rain in Range Rover - restricted access other side and difficult to turnaround'

The first ford is short and simple (Image 1). The second is an Irish bridge. After which is footpath only (Image 2). with a gate closed. The best ford to the west of the other two (Image 3). Cars can access there with no difficulty, but the lane later turns into a footpath.

Sent in by Rod Souter (01/06/2003)

'A fascinating ford ensemble, in theory two fords but really just one. As Image 1 shows the ford at first glance looks like a short shallow crossing. However, what isn't instantly apperent is that you can turn upstream and follow the river bed for at least 300 feet! 'It starts shallow, but gets deeper near the end as the bottom changes from gravel to sand.' Image mouseovers sent in by Simon & Debbie Wilson (24/01/2005)

North Witham
SK929220 (1*) Suitable for All
Sent in by Richard Whitham (06/08/2003)

'This is a concrete-based watersplash across the fledgling River Witham. It was about 2 yards across and 1-2 inches deep when I visited. There is a footbridge and a rather buckled depth gauge, which is embedded in the bank so that it would only show the depth of the water from 2 feet upwards. There are warning signs on the approach from both directions, but the one at the edge of the village is covered in green and thus not easily read.' Peter D Smith





Northbeck
TF097409 (1*) Irish Bridge
Sent in by Patrick Welby-Everard (04/08/2007)

'Sadly like most of the old fords it has been replaced with a very low bridge, with the old stone bridge left on the right.

It still floods though. In the 2007 floods, the river was a good 5 foot above the ford and rising fast (see mouseover)'

Stoke Rochford
SK931287 (2*) Off-Roaders Only!
Sent in by Peter D Smith (Image 1: 28/10/2005)

'Approached from the A1 down a breaking up stone and tarmac track with heavy grass growth in the centre that would make it difficult for cars. The track is called Washdike Lane and the opposite approach would appear to go through a farmer’s property. The lane is now gated although not locked and appears to have regular tractor usage. The ford across the River Witham is very pretty with some stone work by the side but no bridge. After a little rain the water was 6 to 10 inches deep in December.' Rob Thornley

Sent in by Peter D. Smith (21/10/2004)
