Castle Eaton Bridge
|Castle Eaton Bridge|
The iron girder bridge with brick piers was built in 1893 with materials supplied by iron founders E. Finch & Sons of Chepstow. It was described by Fred Thacker in 1920 "The present deplorable iron trough ... The [Thames] Conservancy is often blamed for its hideousness; their responsibility amounts only to acquiescence; I understand the Swindon District Board was the actual artist". It was strengthened in 2001.
The bridge it replaced was of timber with stone piers and stone causeway.
