Bochersbrigge
   Near Castle Baynard near the Thames.
   Writs issued for the removal of the "Bochersbrigge," where butchers were in the habit of casting offal into the river, 43 Ed. III. (Cal. L. Bk. G. pp. 246 and 249).
   The slaughter of beasts to take place outside the City and not in the shambles as before (Cal. Close R. Ed. III. 1369-74, p. 31).
   After the bridge had been removed, the nuisance continued (ib. 262).
   Possibly a bridge over the Fleet, near to its junction with the Thames.
