  • Tykes Water Bridge, Aldenham Park, Elstree

    I'll bet it's an early sighting of the bridge in It's a Bet (1935):

      There's a similar bridge over a lake in the Pinewood estate which appears in many different films

        I've been here at least half a dozen times on the annual Dead Man's Treasure Hunt event, as recently as this time last year when for the first time ever we were allowed to access it from the nearby Haberdasher Askes School. The land here is owned by Lord Aldenham, who's permission is always sought and given, although I'm not sure if money changes hands or not. One of the conditions of recent years has been that we have to be reasonably quiet because the local angling club are usually present and if we make too much noise it scares the fish away.

          I do believe it appeared in an old Avengers episode on one of the satellite channels this evening.

            Some horse riding by, and shortly after over, the bridge as we Taste the Blood of Dracula (1969):

                A victim of the site migration unfortunately - the new site software wouldn’t accept it and I haven’t had time to try and sort out a replacement
