Dunham Bridge is a Toll Bridge crossing the River Trent between Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. It carries the A57 between the A1 and Lincoln.


The first bridge was built by a group of Lincoln businesmen in the 1830s, under the powers of the "Dunham Bridge Act 1830". The bridge was a cast iron type bridge, and was replaced by the current bridge in 1976. The new bridge still rests on the original brick columns.

Since 1994, there are 4 toll booths, upgraded from the original 2.


There is a wide range of different prices for different types of vehicles, the most popular are shown below. It should be noted that the crossing is free on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, and pedestrians and three wheeled invalid carriages enjoy free crossings all year round.
