High Bridge

From south of the river Windrush, across High Bridge you get a great view of Bourton on the Water High Street. High Bridge was built in 1756, named High Bridge because it is higher than the other bridges.

It has the reputation of being the most romantic bridge in the village, because it is a popular place for couples to get engaged on (note the sign on High Bridge Jewellers), but we have none of that on this tour!

Hear the strange tale of a ghost who haunts an object in a building rather than the building itself.

Also the ghost of a man in a raincoat & a flat cap who is also sited in other parts of the village.

Also hear about the world war I artillery gun placed on the village green, & what the locals did to it & why they didn’t like it.
