Read on to hear more about the history of Bond's bridge at The Argory

Prior to the bridge being constructed, a ferry crossed the river that was operated by a local lady named Maggie Maguire. Maggie lived in River cottage which is now privately owned on the far side of the river.

Maggie Maguire operated the ferry across the River Blackwater before the bridge was constructed

The ground at Bond’s Bridge and the river path formed part of the original Argory estate which was given to the National Trust in 1979. 

The carpark and jetty at Bonds Bridge is for local fishermen use, and not for walkers to access the estate and walks. Visitors are advised to use the main entrance to The Argory and then follow the River Walk in order to view the bridge.
