Historic Whitney-on-Wye single track Toll Bridge dates back to 1779...

Historic Whitney-on-Wye single track Toll Bridge dates back to 1779. One of just a few remaining in England. Two earlier bridges were washed away by the strong river currents and a stone and timber construction was built in 1797.Open 365 days a year with parking and riverside picnic area. Come and fish, canoe, picnic or camp with us. Perfect setting for camping part way through your canoe trip - on the banks of the River Wye at Whitney Toll Bridge HR3 6EW. Very quiet and private small campsite with fire pit, direct canoe launch/land and parking. Four toilets available (clean and fully stocked with soap and loo rolls etc) plus clean drinking water shower tap (sorry no private showers). Breakfast and BBQs can be arranged - fully licensed so you can enjoy a chilled beer too.

Historic old Toll Bridge

Worth paying to go over this historic old Toll Bridge if you are on the way to Hay on Wye from Hereford. Saves time and supports a privately run toll bridge.

In the day and age of all things modern, historical gems like this beautiful little bridge in the breathtaking Hereford countryside, and the dedicated, warm and friendly couple who look after it, really were a highlight in our travels. Being so picturesque, my husband and I decided to make a night of it and pitched our tent in the camping... More

OK, this is 'just a bridge' but, it's also a very nice old bridge that looks quite attractive and which stands over the River Wye which therefore enables you to look down the river at some outstanding scenery and if your lucky see kingfishers, otters, herons, salmon, barbel, bats in the evening, all manner of wildlife. The owners are also... More

Standing on the toll bridge, gazing into the fast flowing river Wye is a pleasant way to pass the time. We had just stopped to fill a few minutes before meeting up with old friends but were lucky enough to see three smart old Morgan sports cars (made in Malvern, of course). Though there is no charge for pedestrians to... More

I know it is a Toll Bridge, however compared to the functioal expensive Severn Bridge, this one is a treat to cross, or should that be experience. The toll was 80p which was acceptable for an historic crossing over a fine historic bridge with such a wonderful view. The real surprise was to be given a ticket with a code... More

Hopefully the same place. Lovely crossing point across the Wye. A good range of coffee & snacks and memorabilia available. saw it on 'Secret Britain'. An ideal spot to break your journey, especially in the sunshine.

Have used this bridge many times over the years. It can make a nice short cut if going to Hay and Wye. Have stopped a few times and taken in the view from the Bridge, But never stopped and had tea or eaten. Best seen, In Spring and Autumn. DONE

I regularly use this bridge on my travels to Hay-on-Wye. I do a lot of caring in the community and travel from Hereford to Hay at least 2-3 times a week and use the bridge regularly. I usually don't have the 80p that is recommend and quite often put £1 in the toll as I know that 20p will go... More

After paddling for 8 miles on the flooded Wye (or further if you include zig-zagging) this bridge and adjoining landing area was the most welcome sight as was the lift back home to Hollybush Camping
