Bridge Trafford

Bridge Trafford

Bridge Trafford is a hamlet and civil parish situated near to Chester, in Chester District, Cheshire, England. The hamlet lies some convert|2|mi|km|0 to the north of the centre of the village of Mickle Trafford on the A56 road (gbmapping|SJ450713). In 2004 its population was 40. [Latham, p.9.]

It is believed that the Roman road from Chester to Wilderspool (now part of Warrington) passed through the parish. In 1991 a Roman bronze brooch was found in the parish. [Latham, pp.12–14.]

Immediately to the south of the hamlet the River Gowy is crossed by Trafford Bridge. A stone bridge was first built here in 1410 and there was probably a wooden bridge before that. After the Civil War the bridge needed repairs and these were carried out in 1648. [Latham, p.25.]
