Overview

Sir Hugh Clopton, the Stratford-upon-Avon man who became Lord Mayor of London, is commemorated in this 14-arched stone bridge over the Avon known as Clopton Bridge. A great benefactor to Stratford, Sir Hugh not only paid for Clopton Bridge, but also provided funds for the restoration of the Guild Chapel in the 15th century. A few yards downstream, there is another bridge across the Avon. This dates back to 1823 and is built of brick, has nine arches and was constructed for horse-drawn goods wagons on rails. It is now a pedestrian-only bridge and provides a great vantage point for taking in views and photographs of the river.
