Steel girder bridge over the River Stour in North Essex. Postcode CO4 5TB.

Built in 1900 by Lexden and Winstree Union.

"Boxted Bridge was first mentioned, in January 1895, when a petition was sent to West Suffolk and Essex County Councils asking them to 'fix up a new one.' The Company offered £100 towards the cost if the Counties took over the bridge." In October the Managing Director stated that Boxted and Wormingford bridges must be repaired,'" and this became obvious when, in the winter of 1895/6,Wormingford bridge fell in and had to be rebuilt." Soon afterwards the problem of Boxted bridge was solved and West Suffolk and Essex County Councils took over the bridge, the Navigation giving £50 to each Council."[1]
