Trinity Bridge (Crowland)

Trinity Bridge is a very unusual feature in the small Lincolnshire town of Crowland.

This curious structure, built about 1530, has three sets of steps under which are three arches.

The purpose was to allow passage over three small streams, tributaries of the River Welland.

The bridge is now left high and dry in the town centre, as all three streams have since dried up.

On the bridge is an ancient stone figure, which is actually a statue of Jesus which once crowned the West Front of the great Crowland Abbey.
