First important records of a bridge here were 1329 and 1360. When the old bridge
was rebuilt in 1835 a stone was discovered bearing the inscription: - IN THE YERE
OF OVRE LORD 1570 THES ARCHES WER BORNE DOVNE BY THE WATERS EXTREMYTIE. IN THE
YERE OF OVRE LORD 1571 THEY WERE BULDED AGAYN WITH LYME AND STONNE THANKS BE TO
GOD. The bridge was again rebuilt and widened in 1912. The above stone is preserved
in the parapet.
