The Packhorse Bridge, built in about 1446, forms part of the trade route from Bury-St Edmunds to Cambridge. 

Originally built with low walls to accommodate the packs the animals would carry.

The river Kennet flows through the village, where a fine "Packhorse Bridge" which dates from the 15th century spans it. This bridge has four pointed arches and a low parapet to ensure a safe journey for the goods carried by the pack-horses along its narrow roadway.
