The Burford Suite

Abingdon Bridge was built in 1416 and comprises three bridges; Hart or Town Bridge (from the White Hart Inn which stood on the present site of the Old Gaol); Burford Bridge (a corruption of ‘Borough’ and ‘Ford’) over the main flow of the Thames; and Maud Hales Bridge, financed by the widow of a local businessman. Major improvements were made to the bridge in 1790 and again in the 1920’s when the arches were rebuilt and faced with the original stone.
