    BIFRONS ('Two Fronts') Sadly demolished immediately postwar (1949), was the most significant house for Bridge. Originally built by John Bargrave in 1634, with two wings, as the name implies, it was rebuilt in contemporary style in the 1770's by Edward Taylor. It was sold in 1820 to Marchioness Conyngham, a favourite of George IV and notable benefactress to the village 'fat, handsome, kindly, shrewd and extremely fond of jewels'. 2
