Route
“Said to be very similar to the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. People would not cross the river out of the town, so Lord Pultney got Adam to design a bridge with shops on it. Whilst browsing the shops you dont realise you have crossed the river. Laura Place and Henrietta Road are named after Lord Pultney's daughter.”
