Crossings related to the B103 (Northern Ireland)

Wolfenden's Bridge carries the B103 across the River Lagan at Lambeg, between Belfast and Lisburn. It is a stone arch bridge, with nine small arches. The road deck has two traffic lanes and narrow pedestrian provision.

It is named after one of the pioneers of the linen industry[1] who lived in nearby Lambeg House.

The listing theorises that the bridge may have been constructed as early as the late 17th Century, on the site of a previous ford[2]
