PROJECT DETAILS Scotland Street Bridge at Stoke by Nayland is a cast iron girder bridge, one of only eight cast iron bridge listed on the county's HER. The bridge dates to 1867and was fabricated by E R and F Turner, who were an Ipswich-based milling engineers, and the only bridge known to have been manufactured by this firm. Cast into the face of the outer girder is dedication to 'J H Rinder Surveyor 1867' who had been appointed as the areas road surveyor by the Lavenham Highway Board the previous year. Map evidence suggests that the river was straightened when the bridge was built and that previously it had been crossed by a ford. However medieval land documents make reference to a 'Skotlodebregge' in the area as early as 1387.
