Clopton Bridge is a 14-arched stone masonry bridge carrying the A3400 across the River Avon at Stratford upon Avon in Warwickshire.

Dating from 1480, when its construction was financed by Hugh Clopton (who would later become Lord Mayor of London), it was widened on the upstream side in 1811 and a cast-iron footbridge was added to the same side in 1827.

The bridge – the only road crossing of the Avon at Stratford before construction of the A4390 Southern relief Road in the 1980s – is today a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
