The weather was clear so we went for an after dinner stroll to find Cromwell's Bridge. It was a lovely walk and there's a pretty rushing river under the bridge with flowers and ivy. A nice spot for pictures and to enjoy nature and it costs nothing to climb the bridge and explore the surrounding park.

Brilliant, what fun, even for a group of 60- year olds recovering from knee and back operations! You can climb one side like a ladder, just like they did 800 years ago. One huge annoyance is that there is no cut through between the bridge and the nearby stone circle:- you've just got to go all the way back and... More

Get some nice photos of the bridge and river, and take a walk thru the little park back into town, its quite fascinating that this ancient arch is still standing.

Apparently the bridge is shaped like a moustache - but aren't most bridges? It is amazing that it has survived for so long and I wouldn't like to use it in a hurry, but is has a certain charm about it. Visit this and the stone circle and it will take you less than 30 minutes

Part of a fine self-guided tour that we highly recommend. Amazing that this 11th Century structure is at our fingertips. See it and enjoy it!

It is a fascinating bridge from the 11th century. Very interesting but more because of its age than the bridge itself. I liked it.

lovely 5 minute stroll from the town to see a little piece of history, nice for a picture and a nice little stroll for the little ones (although very slippery when wet)

We stayed at a bed and breakfast just up the road from the bridge, so it was easy to walk a few extra yards to see this ancient bridge. It is covered in moss and greenery and looks like a high arch. There is no charge to see it, and it just amazed us to walk up to and around... More

A small, very old Stonebridge. A nice picnic area at the same time. It doesn't cost anything to go there. However, you see the bridge and that's it.
