History

The Swinford Toll Bridge was opened in 1769. It replaced a pre-existing ferry and the Earl of Abingdon funded its construction.Itis one of the two remaining toll bridges that cross the Thames upstream of London, the other being Whitchurch Bridge.

In 1835 tolls for pedestrians over Swinford Bridge were abolished. Pedal cycles and motorcycles were also exempt from tolls. Oxfordshire County Council estimates that over 10,000 vehicles cross the bridge every day. The bridge was put up for sale in 2009 and was sold at auction on 3 December for £1.08 million.
