Harrington Bridge, 1906 girder bridge
Harrington Bridge is a causeway bridge over the River Trent, built in 1790. The main bridge section was damaged in floods in 1904 and was replaced by this modern steel bridge in 1906. The remaining sections of the original 18th century masonry bridge are all separately Listed Grade II.

The abutment of the southern section is visible at the right hand end of the bridge.
River Trent
The River Trent is the third longest river in England (185 miles). It rises on Biddolph Moor, Staffordshire, then follows a generally north east to northerly path to join the River Ouse at Trent Falls. The Ouse & Trent combined form the Humber Estuary.
It is a very important river, economically having a number of Power Stations and industrial sites along its banks. It is navigable as far as Burton-On-Trent.
