Bridge Over River Thames Sells for $1.6 Million





LONDON — A toll bridge built in 1769 across the River Thames has sold for more than $1.66 million at auction.

The Swinford bridge brings in about 320,000 in toll payments from about 4 million vehicle crossings a year.

Due to a quirk in British law, toll revenue collected from the picturesque stone structure about 65 miles northwest of London can be collected tax-free.
