- I

Bridge and attached causeway. Mid C14, datestones 1668, 1829, widened west side
in 1754 and 1922. Squared coursed limestone, part banded with ironstone,
limestone ashlar and brick. Bridge of 10 double and triple chamfered arches.
Those on west side have outer arches with brick voussoirs probably of 1754.
Large cutwaters to both sides; 5 on east side have refuges. Datestone 1668 on
east side probably refers to restoration. Plaque with cross keys of St. Peter on
west side. Central plaque with inscription relates to restoration of 1829.
Causeways attached to each end, each of 5 arches, originally formed part of the
bridge. Widened on west side and east parapets renewed and refaced in brick and
ashlar; probably all of 1922. Medieval arches survive within the arches of the
causeway. Originally constructed as a bridge of some 20 arches, probably under
instruction of The Abbey of Peterborough. Scheduled as an ancient monument.
