CROWLAND EAST STREET TF 2210-2310 (west side) 17/7 Holy Trinity Bridge 1962 G.V. I Footbridge. c.1375. Limestone ashlar and rubble. Triangular plan. 3 richly moulded pointed archways joined to each other at an angle of 120 degrees. Beneath the bridge 3 broad semi- circular arches are decorated with slender liernes. Upper walkways with high moulded coped parapets. Steep flight of13 steps on west side. East side with a flight of 5 steps leading to a rubble slope. South side with a flight of 4 steps leading to another rubble slope with a wooden railing on the west side of this flight; possibly reflecting a partial re-modelling. 6 foot high seated figure of Christ holding an orb erected against the west side of the east wall of this flight. The statue dates from c.1260 and probably originated on the apex of the west front of Crowland Abbey, the gable of which was taken down in 1720. Originally functioned as a route over the junction of the rivers Nene and Welland. A wooden triangular bridge was known to have existed on this site in 943. Source: Larken, p.26.
