Crossings related to the B9136

The Silver Bridge carries an unclassified road across the River Avon, immediately next to its junction with the B9136. The bridge is a single span metal truss bridge, of a style often referred to as 'Bailey Bridges'. It was opened in December 1998, and presumably rests on pre-existing abutments, as old maps show a bridge has crossed the river here for many years. However, the abutments seem to have been partially rebuilt to suit the new bridge. There is no evidence in the immediate area for an alternative crossing point, either in the shape of an old road junction or masonry on the river banks.
