When highway bridges became the repsonsibility of the County Council in 1920, it was decided that a new bridge had to be built at Pershore. Unlike as at Bransford, the old bridge was left standing, making a delightful place of historic interest, and one much used by motorists making a halt for refreshments just off the main road. The new bridge was built a few meters downstream of the old bridge, where a row of cottages stood.
