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.
