Kates Bridge, Bourne, Lincolnshire

Kates Bridge, Bourne, Lincolnshire

Kates Bridge is a small settlement on the A15 road, in the parish of Thurlby, approximately 3 miles (5 km) south from Bourne.

During the early 20th century, residents from nearby villages found employment in the brickyard.

Before then, it was the head of navigation on the River Glen and was the only section of river bed with a solid rock bottom thus a safe point to ford before the bridge was built.

In the 1820s, John Loudon McAdam worked on the turnpike here.

The single stone arch no longer suppoirts motorised traffic and now carries the Macmillan Way long distance footpath.
