Pulteney Bridge:

Pulteney Bridge, designed by Robert Adam, spans the River Avon in Bath and was completed in 1773. Shops line the road on either side of the street and the design may have been suggested by the Ponte Vecchio in Venice. The bridge also overlooks a floor control weir and also a radial floodgate. The bridge was actually damaged by floods in 1799 and 1800 and the north side of the bridge was rebuilt, making it look radically different.
