Wikipedia has a page about Grandpont Bridge

Grandpont Bridge is a footbridge across the River Thames near the centre of Oxford, England. It links Friars Wharf in St Ebbes on the north bank to the Geoffrey Arthur Building of Pembroke College, built in 1990, and the Grandpont area. It crosses the Thames on the reach between Iffley Lock and Osney Lock.

The bridge is also used by cyclists. It lies on the Hanson Way, part of National Cycle Network route 5.

The Environment Agency refers to the bridge as "Grandpont Bridge". Another source also calls the bridge "Oxford footbridge".

The bridge was built in the 1930s. The bridge only carried a utility pipe and lacked a walkway in 1977.

The bridge takes its name from Grandpont, the area south of the bridge, which itself takes its name from a much earlier bridge-causeway which included the next bridge downstream, now known as Folly Bridge.
