SU9178 : Borehole & Small Bridge

by

This is on the cycleway (Sustrans route 4) that runs along the north side of Dorney Lake.
The borehole would be for water monitoring in the gravel aquifer which connects the River Thames, Dorney Lake, and various pits and pumping stations through this area.
As for the bridge, there’s no sign of a stream or flood channel here.
At a guess it might have taken the path over a gravel conveyor when there were working quarries nearby.
