Good Morning Everyone,

This is the bridge over the River Windrush at Burford. We were exploring the town in the early evening and after walking down High Street, came upon this beautiful stone bridge.

As you can see, some other tourists were observing its charms when we arrived.

The bridge is Medieval. It is a three arch packhorse bridge built in the 15th century. It has been altered by widening since then. However, the bridge is still too narrow to accommodate modern traffic and is, therefore, now controlled by traffic lights.

I wonder what the bridge will look like at the moment! After all the rain that has been experienced in recent months, most areas around here have suffered from rising rivers and flooding.

Have a great w/e, Bev :-)
