Lady's Bridge is the fifth studio album from musician Richard Hawley, released on 20 August 2007 in the UK and on 9 October 2007 in the US. The album follows his 2005 Mercury Music Prize-nominated album Coles Corner. It is named after the landmark location of Lady's Bridge in Hawley's hometown of Sheffield, an old bridge over the River Don that historically connected the rich and poor parts of the town.

His fifth solo album, Lady's Bridge, is named after a landmark in his native Sheffield, England (as was his previous release, the excellent Cole's Corner). Valentine" opens the album with a majestic, twinkling elegance as the strings rise to meet this gracious singer who's headlining in his own electrified cocktail lounge. Piano and a flowing rhythm mirror the sentiments of "Roll River Roll," a timeless tune that could've been penned in any decade. Serious" picks up the pace with a near-rockabilly skip.

It was only in 2006 when his third solo album Coles Corner was nominated for a Mercury Award – leading winner and head Arctic Monkey, Alex Turner, to quip that Hawley had been robbed – that cemented his gentle upgrade out of the shadows, and won him a whole host of new fans in the process. Like its predecessor, Lady’s Bridge takes its name from a local landmark in his native Sheffield, a bridge that historically connected the poor side of the. Overall, Lady’s Bridge is an utterly lovely, timeless album that Hawley can be proud of, and deserves to further his cause in becoming a proper national treasure. Don’t let him get robbed again.

"When the flood was at its height the scene on the Lady's Bridge at the top of the Wicker was most extraordinary. The water came rushing down between the buildings on each side with a force that made the Lady's Bridge quake and tremble. Against the bridge were piled up trees, logs of timber, broken furniture, and debris of every description."
Harrison 1864.

"I have crossed Lady's Bridge back and forth many times over the years, mainly to get to Kenny's Records on one side (now long gone sadly) or to the Castle Market on the other, both places provided me with food of different sorts. We all have to cross bridges in our lives and we will all have to leave things behind that are hard to let go sometimes, pause though before you cross and watch the ancient river flow, be at peace...then move on"
Hawley 2007.
