Wansford, United Kingdom

Wansford, sometimes Wansford-in-England, is a village just off the A1 road near Peterborough and eight miles south of Stamford.

The Great North Road crossed the River Nene here by Wansford Old Bridge, now a Grade I listed building. The stone bridge replaced a wooden bridge with eight arches damaged by floods in 1571. The Great North Road was diverted to the east and the 1920s concrete bridge is itself Grade II*; it now carries the northbound carriageway of the A1.
