Marlow Bridge From All Saints Graveyard
There has been a bridge across the Thames at Marlow since before 1227. The present bridge was built between 1829 and 1832 to replace the wooden bridge sited further downstream, which had grown inadequate for the growing traffic on the Reading and Hatfield Turnpike road. It eventually collapsed in 1828. William Tierney Clark FRS MICE (1783-1852) was appointed to design a new bridge and supervise its construction.
