The Tramway bridge is far more picturesque that the nearby Clopton bridge, and away from the busy road too. It's a great place to watch the river.

The history of this bridge is really interesting. To look at it you might think that its just and old bridge! Well it is, but it carried a tramway when it was built in 1823. There is a plaque explaining its history near by

What a great place to cross the river. It offers traffic-free pedestrian access with great views of the river and far easier than the road bridge.

A splendid ancient bridge now a footbridge. Great views of the river and the Theatre and well worth the small walk from the town centre. Use this bridge to cross the rive, then return on the chain ferry.

A footbridge spanning the Avon which used to be the track of an old tramway. Enjoyable views of the area and of the river and it's wildlife Gets you over the river avoiding the road and it's traffic and links the gardens either side

Strolling over this old historical bridge on a sunny fall day was wonderful! It's nice to use this foot bridge, not worry about traffic, and take in the views and sights. Lots of ducks, swans, canal boats on the river, and great people watching. Parked...More

A busy little bridge that dates back to 1823 and is now used as a foot bridge. Any number of beautiful white swans sails gently under the bridge. Loads of people use it daily and it's still standing. A nice bit of ancient history to...More
