Many of the heritage features still visible in the Park are connected to the Milton Estate. The Fitzwilliam family once owned the land that was to become Ferry Meadows and collected rents from tenant farmers who worked the fields.
This handsome bridge is over 300 years old and helps to tell the story of how Ferry Meadows got its name as the bridge was built by the Fitzwilliam family to replace a ferry service which operated on the River Nene. The bridge is marked on maps of the Park and a visit can be combined with a walk through the lovely Bluebell Wood.
