History
Opened1841

Hannington Bridge is a road bridge across the River Thames in England. It carries a minor road between Kempsford in Gloucestershire and Hannington Wick in Wiltshire. It was built of stone in 1841 replacing an earlier wooden bridge.

The bridge comprises three small skew arches, with a causeway either side with flood arches. The river this far is navigable from Lechlade for rowing boats but the bridge is very difficult to negotiate as the stream here is fast and shallow.
