About this spot
Magdalen bridge spans the divided stream of the River Cherwell just to the east of the city centre, next to Magdalen College. It connects the High Street to the left with the plain, now a roundabout to the east. Originally thought to be a wooden trestle construction or a drawbridge, the present stone bridge was built between 1772 - 1790 by John Randall. There are large semicircular arches for the the two different branches of the river.
