Overview

Historic Whitney-on-Wye single track Toll Bridge dates back to 1779. One of just a few remaining in England. Two earlier bridges were washed away by the strong river currents and a stone and timber construction was built in 1797.Open 365 days a year with parking and riverside picnic area. Come and fish, canoe, picnic or camp with us. Perfect setting for camping part way through your canoe trip - on the banks of the River Wye at Whitney Toll Bridge HR3 6EW. Very quiet and private small campsite with fire pit, direct canoe launch/land and parking. Four toilets available (clean and fully stocked with soap and loo rolls etc) plus clean drinking water shower tap (sorry no private showers). Breakfast and BBQs can be arranged - fully licensed so you can enjoy a chilled beer too.

What a quaint little bridge. Make sure you have your pound coin ready and keep a pen in your car to write down today's code to get back over bridge for free. Absolutely beautiful. Take your camera.

Next time you come over please do park up and take photos from the side of the bridge too - the architecture of it would win prizes but then I am biased! Regards Maggie

Always well maintained by the owners, this toll bridge has a lot of history attached to it. Well worth a photo opportunity.

You can snap some lovely pics of the river from the bridge. Walk down through the park and gets some fantastic shots of the bridge and opposite bank. Ideal for a gentle walk and scenery.
