King Williams Bridge

This packhorse bridge in the village of Anstey near Leicester was built in 1696 to allow the royal coach to cross the Rothley brook on its way to visit the Grey family of the nearby Bradgate Park. I've meant to photograph this a few times as we often pass it on our way to Bradgate Park. I fortunately had a few minutes to spare today on my way back from Glenfield hospital.
Grrat photo. Loved reading the history behind the bridge too!

Cool history. Hope the Greys got plenty of advance notice before the Royal Coach arrived. Lovely image.

Beautiful bridge! Glenfield hospital was just being built when I did my nurse training at Leicester, Groby rd was still fully operational then!
