Old Loftsome Bridge was a tolled wooden swing bridge across the River Derwent near Wressle, in Yorkshire. It had a carriageway width of 10 feet and weight limit of 5 tons.
The bridge was built in 1804 to replace a ferry crossing. It was superceded in 1932 by the opening of a newer bridge slightly downstream on 25 November 1932. The bridge was removed in the 1960s.
