Church Acre Bridge
East Sussex County Council
Church Acre bridge is listed and located across one of the many drainage channels criss-crossing the Pevensey Marshes, a triple SSI site.
The bridges on the marshes were originally the responsibility of the Environment Agency but they recently passed into the care of East Sussex County Council. The Council have instigated a programme of inspecting and repairing as necessary the many bridges on the marsh.
Church Acre bridge required extensive repairs and strengthening to the brick arch brickwork, re-pointing, and the installation of sheet pile training walls to each side of the bridge aprons. The parapet was also increased in height to comply with present day regulations and new copings installed. The bridge is now in a fit state for the 21st Century.
