Summary : A 19th century bridge on the site of a pre-1175 bridge.
More information : (SK 2560 2326) A bridge across the Trent was evidently in existence
at Burton as early as the 12th century, for a grant of land for the
benefit of the bridge is recorded in 1175. It is mentioned again in
the 13th and 14th centuries. In the 19th century, when it was
demolished to make way for the present bridge, it had thirty-six
arches. (1)

The existing bridge, of thirty-two arches, is a 19th century
rebuilding in dressed stone, widened in 1926. A medieval arch from
Burton Bridge was re-erected at Newton Park, SK 2786 2546. (2a) (2)
