Town Bridge crosses the River Stour on the B3092. It is actually situated on Bridge Street, Sturminster Newton.It is a 6 arch bridge spanning the River Stour a few hundred yards downstream from the more iconic Sturminster Mill. However, with its grade I listed status, it carries more weight (if you'll pardon the pun) than its near neighbour, and is of course much older, dating from circa 1500. It was widened in the C17, and this included corbelling over the central arches to provide pedestrian refuges.
