Cole Hall Lane Bridge carries Cole Hall Lane over River Cole, to the north of Setchford. The bridge is a single carriageway bridge carrying two traffic lanes with wide pavements.

The present bridge was constructed in 2011, which replaced a single-lane bailey bridge (with alternate flows governed by traffic signals that previously existed at the site. For this reason, the bridge is locally known as the Bailey Bridge.

The first reference to a bridge on the site found was in 1405, although it is unknown what materials were used and whether this was just a footbridge. We know that a brick arch bridge was after the Second World War, which itself was damaged by flooding and replaced with the bailey bridge c.1970[1].
