Farndon Bridge on the River Dee
Farndon Bridge on the River Dee
Farndon Bridge was built in 1339 by Monks from St Werburgh's Abbey Chester. It originally had ten arches with a large gate tower on the fifth arch. In the 18th century the tower was demolished and at some time two of the arches on the Welsh side were lost. The bridge is a narrow structure built of red sandstone with eight arches, of which five are over the river. On the Farndon side is one flood arch and two flood arches are on the Holt side.
