The beautiful Town Bridge dates from the 13th Century and was widened in 1769. The large tower at the end was known as a 'blind house' and was to lock up for the drunk and disorderly in the 17th Century. The tower replaced a Medieval Chapel.

Directions: Between Silver street and St Margaret's Street
