Five Arch Bridge panorama

crossing close to the far western end of Virginia Water lake is the Five Arch Bridge, designed and built by Sir Jeffry Wyattville in 1822-1827. He also put together the Roman 'ruins' (Leptis Magna was a temple removed from Tripoli and reassembled next to the lake, after a plan to use it in the portico at The British Museum failed to materialise), He was knighted by George IV and is buried in St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
