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
