The New Bridge was built to replace the former Archer Bridge, a chain bridge which
spanned the Skell from a point between Thorpe Prebend House (qv) and St Anne's
Hospital (qv) in High St Agnes Gate. As the latter was only a footbridge, the
principal vehicular exit southward from the town must have been either over Bondgate
Bridge (qv) or by the ford further downstream. The latter corresponds to the alleged
siting of the Anglo-Saxon and mediaeval ford, east of the Collegiate Church, and, with
the route leading up St Mary's Gate to the North Bridge over the Ure, formed the
principal north-south axis of such a site.
