part restored with blue brickwork. East elevation of 9 arches. 4 arches to left
are medieval, double chamfered, with 2-centred heads; widened C18 with
semi-circular outer arches. 5 arches to centre and right are probably C18,
semi-circular, with plain string course above 4 arches to right. All arches have
orange brick dressings. 2 arches to far right have panels of blue brickwork
between. 4 cutwaters, with refuges, between centre arches. Plain parapet with
chamfered ashlar coping. West elevation is similar with panels of blue brickwork
to left and 2 cutwaters with refuges between centre arches. In 1224 Bishop Hugh
of Wells granted an indulgence to travellers contributing to the repair of the
bridge and in 1313 Bishop Dalderby granted an indulgence for the fabric of the
Chapel of St. Thomas the Martyr next to the bridge. In C14 and C15 grants were
obtained for its repair. Leland mentions a bridge of 8 arches in 1543 and a
brief for repairs mentions a bridge of 24 arches in 1664.
