An attractive, wrought iron bridge forms the centrepiece of St Peter’s Fields.

On closer inspection, however, you realise there is something a bit odd about this bridge… it doesn’t actually cross anything.

The bridge originally crossed a lake in the grounds of the Chateau Impney. After it was deemed unsafe the town council bought the bridge and placed it over a mound in the park.

It is adorned with 48 plaques featuring elephants, representing part of the coat of arms of Chateau Impney builder John Corbett. Perhaps that makes it a trunk road!
