Loughton Bridge. This is an ancient crossing although the earliest reference is in the 13th. In the 17th it became a county bridge but the area is subject to flooding and in 1809 it was destroyed by floods and rebuilt in timber by Johnson as County Surveyor but this lasted until only 1824. The next rebuilding provided tunnels under the causeway to channel flood water and there are more recent flood relief schemes here.
Mill - There was possibly a mill and mill dam here.
