|Built late 18th century|
Tadpole Bridge is a road bridge across the River Thames, carrying a road between Bampton in Oxfordshire to the north and Buckland in Berkshire to the south. It crosses the Thames on the reach above Shifford Lock.
The bridge dates from the late 18th century, the earliest reference to it being in 1784. It is built of stone, and consists of one large arch.
There is a public house near Tadpole Bridge called The Trout. Thacker noted that at one time the legend over the door read "The Trout, kept by A. Herring". The Trout is now a hotel and gastropub.
The Thames Path crosses Tadpole Bridge.
