Itchen bridge

Please don't tell me that that bridge is still a toll bridge. It was built over 25years ago.!!!! Who want's to go to "Spike Island" anyway. Who is STILL collecting the toll money?. Anyway, it was more fun on the old floating bridge.
Regards, Tony ( still a mush)

Still a toll bridge, (even though it was built with the understanding once the toll had paid for it, it would be free.. ).. One of the floating bridges is now a restaurant on the Hamble.. Limited menu, but nice, fresh seafood..

Why "Spike Island"?

When I was a kid, if you lived W. of the Itchen you were a Mush and if E. ( Woolston) you were a Spike and you had to get on a "boat" to get there. Hence " Spike Island"
Where on the Hamble is the floating bridge restaurant. I must have missed that when I was back in UK a couple of years ago. However, my old friends at Moodys and the Old Ship did me proud in terms of hospitality. For some peculiar reason my money was no good at the bar, thanks to my good friends Jim and Peggy of the Old Ship and Squeaker at the Dog House. Sorry I forgot all the good guys at the White Hart, Hamble. also.

Thanks for the useful but very sad info. Will have to make some calls tomorrow. Hope the pictures I donated 25 years ago survived.
