Stratford-Upon-Avon, England

Stratford-Upon-Avon is William Shakespeare's hometown. This map is centered on New Place, Shakespeare's final residence. Here's the wikipedia article on the town.

If you scroll due East, you'll see two bridges across the Avon. Between them is the Swan's Nest hotel where we stayed. The long bridge is the Clopton Bridge built in 1490. Here are some old postcards of the bridge and the nearby foot bridge.
