User contributed information about Abingdon Bridge
2 minutes walk from the bridge (north-westwards) will take you to Abingdon market place. There are many coffee shops from chains like Costa to homely independent ones - look out for "Throwing Buns" behind the ancient County Hall. Its name relates to an Abingdon tradition going back many years. All is explained on the walls within! The County Hall is one of the finest examples of a free-standing town hall with an open ground floor. On a Saturday afternoon in the summer you can even sit and watch a riverside cricket match at Abingdon Vale CC. If you are mooring here overnight, you could make use of the cricket club bar, which stays open long after the game finishes!

Wikipedia has a page about Abingdon Bridge

Abingdon Bridge crosses the River Thames at the town of Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England. It carries the A415 road from Abingdon to Dorchester, Oxfordshire, over the reach of the Thames between Culham Lock and Abingdon Lock.

The bridge is actually two bridges, linked by Nag's Head Island. Abingdon Bridge is the northern part towards the town which has six arches and crosses the backwater and mill stream. The southern part is technically called Burford Bridge and has one main arch and four minor arches at the river and two minor arches on the floodplain. This crosses the main navigation channel. Furthermore, to complete the Thames crossing, Culham Bridge crossing the Swift Ditch should also be considered as an extension.
