Bridge plaque approved

A PLAQUE detailing the history of Henley Bridge is to be installed in Singers Park, near the Angel on the Bridge pub.

Town councillors agreed the location having previously rejected a suggestion that it should be on the pavement on the Henley side of the bridge in case that led to congestion.

The council has agreed to pay for four plaques around the town providing the history of landmarks. They each cost around £1,200 to design, make and install.

There are already plaques at the entrance to the Gainsborough estate, at Makins recreation ground and by the obelisk in Mill Meadows.

Henley Bridge, which is Grade I listed, was built in the late 18th century.
