This is a very old example of a cast iron arch bridge and was cast by the famous Coalbrookdale Company.
Bob Dover provided the following information:
This is a tiny cast iron arch footbridge over a canal in a city park, which is not located very close to the tourist center of Bath. You would be unlikely, as a tourist, to come across this bridge on your own, and even experienced seekers of historic bridges will have to do some work to find it. But it is worth it, as it has a delightfully quirky design of graduated circles forming its arch. It also proudly display its construction date on a plaque above the arch, reading “Erected Anno 1800”. It is just a few steps from a similar cast iron bridge which has a similar “Erected Anno 1800” plaque on it. This one is of different construction, and is not nearly as ornate.
