The memorable Bow-bridge

The memorable Bow-bridge, which has long been visited by every curious stranger who has passed through Leicester, on account of it being the accidental monument over the grave of King Richard the Third’s bones, fell on Saturday last, about 11 o’clock. Its foundation has been some time visibly decaying, and the late rains having swelled the waters which pass under it, probably took away its principal support on that end towards St. Austin’s Well, which occasioned its destruction.
