CROMFORD BRIDGE

Cromford Bridge pointed arch Cromford Bridge round arch

Cromford Bridge was built in the 15th century at the site of a ford, with three pointed arches, and refuges over the bridge supports. It would originally have been only 12 feet wide.. Excavations at the chapel in the 1950s revealed traces of a stone abutment to an earlier timber bridge. About 200 years ago it was widened on the north side, where the arches are rounded.

The bridge holds other surprises as it has a rare Bridge Chapel, Fishing Temple and a curious inscription.
