Cavendish Bridge over the River Trent
Cavendish Bridge over the River Trent
The original Wilden Ferry was replaced by a three span arch bridge in 1760. This was named after the scheme's patron, William Cavendish, the 4th Duke of Devonshire. The bridge was destroyed by ice floes and meltwater following the severe winter of 1947. A Bailey Bridge was in place for ten years until a permanent replacement was completed in 1957. The bridge was on a new alignment by-passing the Old Crown Inn on the south bank. The current bridge has restricted capacity controlled by single lane alternate way working with traffic lights.
