(Ayleswade Bridge on OS Map).
Built originally in 1244 by Bishop Bingham across 2 branches of the Avon and
an island between the branches, in conjunction with St Nicholas's Hospital
on the north bank and adjoining the river, and with a Chapel on the island.
The larger part is of 6 arches, the smaller of 2 arches with a segmental centre
embrasure and smaller angular embrasure at the south end both on the east side.
Remains, probably complete of the old bridge are visible inside an outer casing
