Keys to the Past

Ford Bridge (Ford)

Ford Bridge was built in the 18th century. It collapsed in 1807 when the main arch was widened and rebuilt with two arches between 1807-9. However, this 18th century bridge appears to incorporate one arch from an earlier bridge, probably dating from the 16th century. These earlier remains have a number of mason marks. Ford Bridge is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
