to rear of stable Block


Foot bridge over former Avon Navigation. Late C18. Irregular bond
brick with limestone dressings. Two round arches with stone
voussoirs and keystones, low cutwaters on both sides, rounded

Heraldic shield in limestone on east face between arches, bears
arms of Bouverie and Marsham, dating the bridge to about 1748;
