Claycart Bridge
Puckeridge Hill Road, Aldershot, Hampshire

Claycart Bridge is an army-owned Bailey bridge on Puckeridge Hill Road, which crosses the Basingstoke Canal near Farnborough Airfield. Note that, as with much of the area around Aldershot, this is MOD land and so access is public but dependent upon whether in active army use of not!

How to get here:

»

Road: M3 - Exit junction 4 and then take the A331 towards Aldershot until the junction with North Camp; then join the A325 and head south-west until the junction with the A323, towards Fleet. Puckeridge Hill Road is at the junction opposite Rushmoor Road. Parking: you can drive right up to the bridge, though the road surface is extremely bad! +

"This view of the bridge is taken from the west bank of the Basingstoke Canal, where the bank simply drops into the water. This seems the most likely side of the bridge the scene was filmed from, as the bank on the other side has a tow-path present!"

"This view of the bridge is taken from the west, on Puckeridge Hill Road. Based on the angle seen from the bank in the establishing shot this seems likely to be the side filming took place."

Additional Notes:

The bridge itself looks identical from both ends! The views above are taken from Fleet Road side, as the bank the other side of the canal has a towpath beside it.
