Tickford Bridge

Tickford Bridge, over the River Ouzel (or Lovat) in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, England, was built in 1810[1] and is one of the last (21 still remaining) iron bridge in Britain that still carries main road traffic[citation needed] and is the oldest iron bridge in the world that is still in constant use.[citation needed] There is a plaque near the footbridge at the side that gives details of its history and construction. A large set of sluice gates, used to control downstream flooding of the River Great Ouse, is located near the bridge.

Tickford Bridge is Grade I listed by Historic England.[2]
