Last night we moored between Bridges 21 and 22. There is a WWll aerodrome nearby where 495 Fighter Training Group were based. On 4 July 1944, a P-47 Thunderbolt 41-6538 crashed. Luckily the pilot survived. There's more information here:- http://aircrashsites.co.uk/usaaf-crash-sites-1942-1945/a1/

The crash site is in the recess in the hedgerow, centre of the photo, Bridge 21 in the background.
