[1] It is one of the last (21 still remaining) cast iron bridge in Britain that still carries modern road traffic, and is the oldest bridge in the Borough of Milton Keynes. [2] There is a plaque near the footbridge at the side that gives details of its history and construction. A large set of sluice gates, used to control downstream flooding of the River Great Ouse, is located near the bridge.
