Thornborough Bridge in Summer
Thornborough Bridge is the only surviving mediaeval bridge in Buckinghamshire. It dates from the fourteenth century. Of interest are the “cutwaters” or V shaped projections that were used to divert river debris through the arches and as passing places for pedestrians.
A new bridge was built in 1974 to take the growing traffic, thus ensuring the
preservation of the mediaeval bridge which is a scheduled ancient monument.
