Postcards of the Past


Bridge Foot and the Two Bridges,


Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire


Bridgefoot was the location of the Bus Station for many years, until part of the site alongside the canal was developed for housing. In the 1950s, coach services operated to many parts of the country. There were public toilets on that strip of Bridgefoot between Bridge Street and the Birmingham/Warwick Roads. Pubs in the area included the Red Lion, the Unicorn and, across the river, the Swan's Nest, plus the Anchor and Bird's at the bottom of Bridge Street.
