Woolhampton swing bridge
Woolhampton swing bridge
Frequently used swing bridge on a busy minor road. The river Kennet is very fast flowing and inexperienced boats are often caught out here. Bridge rebuilt 1990. This location was probably the last physical barrier to through navigation on the Kennet and Avon Canal. The old bridge was removed during July 1990 and boats first allowed through on 17th July 1990, the first for over 40 years.
