1/1 Radcot Bridge (that part
in town of Gt Faringdon)
Early C14 and C15 stone bridge. 3 arches. Outer arches pointed and ribbed
beneath. Taller central round arch probably a later rebuilding. Chamfered
coping and small 3-sided projection over centre arch of east side. The bridge
was broken down in 1387 at the Battle of Radcot and the centre arch may be a
subsequent repair. 'The best medieval bridge in Berkshire' (Pevsner). A.M.
The north side of the bridge is in West Oxfordshire District.
