Hunningham Bridge

HunninghamBridge2

Hunningham Bridge, Warwickshire.

The earliest written record of this medieval Bridge is dated 1636 when the local inhabitants were indicted for not repairing it. The original structure probably dates from considerably before this time. It’s semi-circular arches were possibly constructed when it was eventually repaired in 1651.

Perhaps the delay in getting around to the repair was caused by the disruption of the English Civil War, 1642-1651.
