The Bridge has enclosed shops on both sides one of four bridges in the world there is similar one in Florence - the best views of the bridge are from the North Road as you walk across into Bath.

This is one of very few bridges which are fully enclosed with shops, (one of the others is the Ponte Vecchio in Florence) although smaller than its brother, it is nonetheless very beatiful and is located just upstream from the wier on the river Avon.

Crossed the bridge before i realised I was on it! The area is beautful with the weir and other buildings. Stone step access by the bridge to the river for a great view.

What a lovely little set piece of Georgian elegance! It’s an eighteenth century take on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence on a much smaller scale. The tiny shops on the bridge add a touch of English eccentricity and charm to the whole.
