Tenfoot Bridge is a wooden footbridge across the upper River Thames, between Oxfordshire on the north bank and Berkshire on the south bank. It is situated on the reach above Shifford Lock and was built in 1869. It connects Buckland on the south bank to Chimney on the north.
The name derives from a pre-existing weir which had in it a flash lock ten feet wide. In 1867 there were complaints about the state of the weir bridge and after a dispute, the Thames Conservancy removed the weir and built the bridge two years later.
