Its around 800 years old, the name Cromwell doesnt refer to Oliver Cromwell, but has morphed into that from an old Gaelic name. it has a very nice setting, its a free attraction, and its amazing to think that it still stands after so many centuries. i wonder how many of our newer bridges will...

This bridge was right behind where we stayed at Cromwell Court. The kids loved scrambling up and down it. It was a really neat old bridge with lots of history.

This takes 2 minutes to see, but is a nice cute old bridge that is worth stopping to see. Nothing to do with Oliver Cromwell as you'll find out when you read the sign, but still fun to see anyway.

This little stone bridge has been here since the 11th century, which, to me, is simply amazing. It is easy to find, and will only take 5-10 minutes of your time. And if you are brave enough, you can still use it to cross over the river!

This town had lots of stones, and the bridge was built with stones and arched very interesting. Kind of hard to climb on, but its more for looks. The town was a good place to roam around with interesting buildings.

To be clear, this bridge is not named for Oliver Cromwell! It is a version of a local Gaelic saying that has been adapted over time. Beautiful image over a little River. Walking distance from the village center. Great for pictures .

This was just down the road from our B&B on our way to dinner. What a pretty bridge with a small river running under it. A very peaceful spot to explore.
