The historic Lady Manning Bridge was built by the British in 1923 and remains as a symbol of British colonial rule in Sri Lanka. In honor of the wife of the British Governor William Manning, it was named Lady Manning Bridge, however, it is generally known as the Old Kallady Bridge by the locals. This is the oldest and longest (276 meters) iron bridge in Sri Lanka and was the gateway connecting Batticola with the southern places of the district until the new Bridge was constructed.
