Eastover ward was created in 2011. It is the area on the east side of the river, its ‘gateway’ the historic town bridge that takes pedestrians from the west side of the town (Westover) into Eastover. Until the 19th century the town bridge was the only bridging point over the tidal River Parrett in this part of Somerset! The Eastover area of Bridgwater within the town centre boundary is often referred to as the ‘Eastover Triangle’.

Old Iron Bridge

Eastover encompasses key transport, retail and business outlets, including the main bus and railway stations, and major retail outlets such as Asda, Sainsbury’s Aldi and the Bridgwater Retail Park.
