Ian Ritchie Architects’ bridge proposal over the River Avon, in Stratford-upon-Avon, central England: abandoned in July 2008

The Stratford bridge was a competition winner but local opposition seems to have scuppered it, a bit like some other attempts at contemporary architecture in the UK – such as Zaha Hadid’s Cardiff Opera House, and almost the Holburne Museum of Art by Eric Parry.

In 1196 Stratford was granted a charter from King Richard I to hold a weekly market in the town, giving it its status as a market town.

The town is a popular tourist destination owing to its status as birthplace of English playwright and poet William Shakespeare, and receives approximately 2.5 million visitors a year.The Royal Shakespeare Company resides in Stratford’s Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
