This takes 2 minutes to see, but is a nice cute old bridge that is worth stopping to see. Nothing to do with Oliver Cromwell as you'll find out when you read the sign, but still fun to see anyway.

This little stone bridge has been here since the 11th century, which, to me, is simply amazing. It is easy to find, and will only take 5-10 minutes of your time. And if you are brave enough, you can still use it to cross over the river!

This town had lots of stones, and the bridge was built with stones and arched very interesting. Kind of hard to climb on, but its more for looks. The town was a good place to roam around with interesting buildings.

To be clear, this bridge is not named for Oliver Cromwell! It is a version of a local Gaelic saying that has been adapted over time. Beautiful image over a little River. Walking distance from the village center. Great for pictures .

This was just down the road from our B&B on our way to dinner. What a pretty bridge with a small river running under it. A very peaceful spot to explore.

The weather was clear so we went for an after dinner stroll to find Cromwell's Bridge. It was a lovely walk and there's a pretty rushing river under the bridge with flowers and ivy. A nice spot for pictures and to enjoy nature and it costs nothing to climb the bridge and explore the surrounding park.

Brilliant, what fun, even for a group of 60- year olds recovering from knee and back operations! You can climb one side like a ladder, just like they did 800 years ago. One huge annoyance is that there is no cut through between the bridge and the nearby stone circle:- you've just got to go all the way back and... More
