Cricklade Town Bridge is a road bridge at Cricklade, Wiltshire across the River Thames. Formerly it marked the ultimate limit of navigation on the River Thames, but the stretch of the river beyond Lechlade has fallen into disuse and the bridge can only be reached by very small craft.

The bridge is single arch level crossing at the north end of the town. It was built in 1852, there being no previous bridge on the site. The original Cricklade crossing was probably closer to the A419 Bridge where it carried Ermin Way. This road was at some time obliterated at the bend north of the bridge, and a road was deflected from it due south through the town. The River Churn joins the Thames just downstream of the bridge.
