Holy Trinity Bridge, Crowland, Lincolnshire
Holy Trinity Bridge was built in 1360-1390 by Benedictine monks. Until the early 17th century the River Welland flowed through the village and divided into two channels under the bridge. Water was directed to the nearby monastery through a water gate. The bridge now stands high and dry near the market place in Crowland. It is unique in Britain. It is formed of three pointed half-arches in the form of a triangle. The bridge was originally crowned with a tall canopied cross. The stone statue was placed there in 1720 and is believed to have come from Crowland Abbey.
