Bidford Bridge crosses the River Avon at Bidford-on-Avon. It is a scheduled monument and is Grade I listed (List Entry Number: 1355318 LinkExternal link Heritage Gateway).

The bridge has eight arches; it is wider than a typical packhorse bridge with cutwaters on the eastern side. Believed to have been built by the monks of Bordesley Abbey, it dates from the early 15th century but has been repaired many times.
River Avon (Warwickshire)
The River Avon is 85 miles long and flows through the Midlands. It rises near Naseby, Northamptonshire, before flowing through Rugby, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Welford-on-Avon, Bidford-on-Avon, Evesham and Pershore, before it joins the River Severn at Tewkesbury. Also known as the Warwickshire Avon or Shakespeare's Avon, the navigable section has been divided since 1719 into the Lower Avon, below Evesham, and the Upper Avon, from Evesham to above Stratford-upon-Avon.
