TRINITY BRIDGE, Crowland

Trinity Bridge is a unique three-way medieval stone arch bridge in the centre of the small Lincolnshire town of Crowland, or Croyland.  It was built by the monks of Crowland Abbey between 1360 and 1390 and once spanned the confluence of the River Welland and a tributary, Cattewater or Cat’s Water.  The rivers were rerouted in the 17th century and the bridge now stands on dry ground near the market place.  The stone structure replaced previous wooden bridges, the earliest mention of which dates back to the reign of King Æthelbald of Mercia in 716 AD. It was also recorded in a charter of King Eadred in 943 AD.
