In the heart of Crowland, a small town in Lincolnshire, England, is a unique attraction—a 14th century stone arch bridge standing by the side of a road junction, long away from any river. But before it was left high and dry the bridge was a vital crossing point in south Lincolnshire dating back to Anglo-Saxon times.

Long, long ago, the River Welland flowed through Crowland, splitting at a point where the bridge stands today. One arm of the river continued north following more or less the present course of the river, while the other arm went south to join River Nene near Wisbech. Then sometime in the middle of 17th century, as part of a land reclamation project, River Welland was embanked and rerouted about a kilometer away from the bridge. The tiny stream that still flowed under the bridge was covered and became sewers.
