Wye Bridge (Hereford)

The Wye Bridge is a particularly ancient one in the attractive old cathedral city of Hereford.

As its name implies, the bridge is over the River Wye, which at this point can have a fierce flow.

It leads out from the city, near Hereford Cathedral, to the St. Martin's area and the lovely walks known as Bishop's Meadow.

The bridge was built in 1490, with passing places for pedestrians. It was widened in 1826, but four of the six arches are still original.

The Wye Bridge is still used by traffic, most of which however uses the 20th century concrete bridge a little upstream.
