Lost Worlds: Crowland’s Triangular Bridge

DSC_0034

In the centre of the small historic town of Crowland in south Lincolnshire, England, is a most curious piece of architecture, commonly named the triangular bridge.

It dates back to medieval times, when the River Welland split into two at this point, reputedly, necessitating the building of this structure. The river now flows elsewhere beyond the town.

There is a figure of Christ or possibly King Ethelbald of Mercia, which may have come from the dissolved abbey nearby.
