SJ9922 : Essex Bridge

near to Great Haywood, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Essex Bridge
Essex Bridge
Seen from the south, spanning the River Trent. Originally there were 40 arches at least, although only 14 remain today - that still makes it the longest surviving packhorse bridge in Britain. Named after the Earls of Essex who required a short cut onto the heights of Cannock Chase. To day it takes the Staffordshire Way into the Shugborough Estate
