I think it's to do with the category in which the tag is located. I'd bet the town and the bridge are in the same one.
I don't recall how much flexibility you have in SE [in PSA 2 you have quite a lot - event more in PSE 3 Organizer].
Ah ! The "Bridge" tag is in the "Anywhere" subcategory of the "Places" category, while the town in question is also a tag in another subcategory of "Places".
Does this perhaps mean that if the tags I am searching on are all or partially in the same category I may not have a search resulting in only those photos which exactly match each tag searched for?

Something like that. I don't recall the exact details of the algorithm. As far as I can tell, it got changed later. In PSE 3 Organizer, tags seem to be independent of one another and the categories and subcategories [which may now be nested indefinitely] are just aggregates.
Thanx, I have now downloaded and installed the 30 day trial of PSE 3.0, and this works exactly as I would want (at last as far searching tags is concerned), so now I am thinking of buying the program.

If you do, there's another forum around here where you'll find any help you need.
