Bridge Street circa 1910. On the right is the entrance to Round Church Street; on the left is St John’s Street. The buildings on the left were demolished by St John’s College some time in the 1930s. They are still marked on the. 1925 OS map.
In Roman times the section from the bridge as far as the site of the later Round Church was a causeway. It was part of the Via Devana. (Peter Bryan, Shaping the City, 2008)
