Location - NUNEHAM COURTENEY - This beautiful wooden foot bridge spans a side stream of the River Thames near Oxford, as it skirts Lock Wood Island before rejoining the main river. It seems to have been built around 1839 and was a very popular place for picnics and the Nuneham Regatta until its collapse around 1910. Not too many images of this bridge around, but what a lovely structure.
