Marlow Bridge is a suspension bridge across the Thames at Marlow built in 1832 for the Hatfield - Reading Turnpike. Previous bridges have existed on the site.

When Marlow was bypassed as part of the A40(M) works, and heavy traffic diverted via Longridge Bridge, the bridge was restored.

After a lorry hit the bridge on 24 September 2016, the bridge underwent substantial testing, with the bridge reopening on 25 November, with only minor restorations needed.
