The Palladian Bridge at Stourhead Gardens, Stourton, Wiltshire, UK
The Palladian Bridge, near the entrance to the garden, is a key feature in the iconic views across Stourhead
Inspired by the work of 16th-century architect Palladio, this five-arched stone bridge was built in 1762. Although ornamental, the bridge was intended to look practical. It was designed to create the illusion that a river flows through the village and under the bridge.
