Kerne Bridge

Kerne Bridge is a bridge, hamlet and local government ward in south Herefordshire, England.

The bridge is about 3.5 miles south of the market town of Ross-on-Wye and allows the B4229 road to cross River Wye from Goodrich to Walford where it joins the B4324 Ross-on-Wye to Coleford road. The bridge is Grade II listed, of national importance and special interest.

The hamlet, which is within the parish of Walford, was originally known as ‘the Quern’, but later became named after the bridge which was built in 1828.
