Thornborough Mediaeval Bridge
Thornborough Mediaeval Bridge
Thornborough Bridge is the only surviving mediaeval bridge in the
County. It dates from the fourteenth century. Of interest are the
“cutwaters” or V shaped projections that were used to divert river debris
through the arches and as passing places for pedestrians. The new bridge
was built in 1974 to take the growing traffic, thus ensuring the
preservation of the mediaeval bridge which is a scheduled ancient
monument.
