Upminster Bridge

Upminster Bridge - see Upminster. To the right of the station, under the railway bridge and near the 'Bridge House' pub, there is a small iron road bridge, marked Upminster Bridge. Tradition has it that the Romans built a ford here over the River Ingrebourne during Caesar's invasion of England.

It seems that in c.1300 a wooden bridge was built to replace the ford. The present bridge was erected by Essex County Council in 1891.

The station was opened as UPMINSTER BRIDGE on 17 December 1934.

Upminster Bridge

The trams on their long journey to Shepherd's Bush were competing more directly with the GWR service to Uxbridge than the Metropolitan Railway's extension from Harrow-on-the-Hill which opened in 1904.
