The Bridges and Roads of Mitcham
by E N Montague
Bridges and Roads deals first with the construction and maintenance over the centuries of Mitcham's bridges over the Wandle and the Graveney, and then with the history of its turnpike highways and its parish roads. The last section looks at some of the more romantic aspects of road travel in the past. There is a useful index.
'Monty' has distilled his notes on this subject accumulated over some years into this booklet, which is illustrated with maps and pictures, and fully annotated.
