Looking roughly northwards from the Ferris Wheel across Stratford-upon-Avon. The bridge at bottom right is the (now) pedestrian "Tramway Bridge", the building at the far end of it being Cox's Yard. A number of narrow boats can be seen moored in the canal basin beyond it on the left.
The Tramway Bridge is Grade II listed LinkExternal link

The Tramway Bridge

The Tramway Bridge crosses the River Avon in Stratford-upon-Avon. It was built in 1826 to a design by J.U. Rastrick to carry the Stratford and Moreton Tramway over the river on nine red brick arches. The Tramway was a 24km long horse tramway built to link the Black Country with rural Warwickshire via the Stratford and Avon Canal. This Grade II listed structure now serves as a footbridge.
