Crossings related to the A1

Tempsford Bridge crosses the River Great Ouse on the A1 north west of Tempsford. The 1820 stone arch bridge now carries just the northbound carriageway on the sub-optimum alignment of the original road. An inscription on the south side of the bridge reads: "J Savage Architect, 1820. Johnson & Sons Builders."

A newer concrete bridge was constructed to take southbound traffic when the road was dualled in late 1961/early 1962.
