Haxey Gate Bridge is a bridge crossing the River Idle in North Nottinghamshire. Although the bridge is fairly quiet, it is the only significant bridge over the Idle between West Stockwith and Bawtry.
This is the modern incarnation of Haxey Gate Bridge, the old bridge still remains. The current bridge is to the east of the Haxey Gate Inn. The old road used to run through what is now the pub car park, and over the older, hump backed bridge to the east of the pub. This route is now blocked off and only provides access to a private fishing area.
