Loggs Bridge 1923

Repairs to Logg’s Bridge

From the Bicester Advertiser and Mid-Oxon Chronicle of 25 May 1923

Bicester Rural District Council

Logg’s Bridge, Oddington

The committee had examined two schemes by the surveyor for the repair of this bridge, and had recommended that one with two steel girders across the water. There was about £5 difference between the cost of a wooden structure and the girders.

The Clerk said the Council should ascertain whether any other authority was responsible for part of the cost. The Thames Conservancy Board or the County Council might be partly responsible.

Mr Franklin said the bridge was built in 1881.

It was decided that the surveyor should get tenders for two steel girders, and that he should make inquiries to ascertain if any other authority was partly responsible for the cost.

Bicester Rural District Council

Logg’s Bridge, Oddington

The Clerk said he had found there was no other authority partly responsible for the above bridge. The Bullingdon Highway Board contributed when the bridge was built in 1882, but that was because it was then a boundary bridge between Oddington and Noke. The latter parish was now in the Bicester District.

The tenders were before the Council for the repair of Logg’s Bridge, Oddington. The one from Messrs. Layton & Sons at £69 5s. was accepted. The other was for £105.

Posts and rails over the stream which divided the parishes of Oddington and Islip were required: and the Surveyor (Mr Eames) was instructed to get the work done.
