Lechlade lies at the highest navigable point of the River Thames, close to where the Rivers Leach and Thames meet. The town's first bridge was built in 1228 and was only the second stone bridge built over the River Thames, the first being London Bridge. Lechlade was a trading place, rather than a manufacturing town. The river was a major source of the town's prosperity, transporting cheese, corn and quarried stone to London.
