Culham Old Bridge, River Thames
Culham Old Bridge, River Thames
This beautiful bridge, which is a Grade II listed Ancient Monument, was built in 1416 over what was then the navigation channel known as Swift Ditch, an artificial channel cut in the early middle ages. After 1590, however, the main Thames route as we know it through Abingdon began to be re-used after dredging. As Swift Ditch was no longer on the navigation, it became known as Back Water. To relieve the ancient bridge of traffic on what is now the A415, Culham New Bridge was built a few yards upstream in 1928.
