Packsaddle bridge, the site of a Medieval bridge destroyed by a flood in 1673. Traces of the stone abutments are still visible in the banks of Finham Brook, just west of the present iron footbridge in the Abbey Fields.
1 The great flood of 1673 – one of the worst floods ever in the town – destroyed the Medieval Packsaddle Bridge, which carried traffic across the brook to the Abbey.
2 Traces of the stone abutments can still be seen in the banks of the stream immediately W of the present iron footbridge in Abbey Fields.
3 The site is within the Scheduled area of the SAM of Kenilworth Abbey (Monument Number 35115).
