4/7 Forge Bridge (that part
in Burrington CP)
(formerly listed in
11.6.59 Leintwardine CP)
Accommodation bridge over the River Teme. Circa 1772. Sandstone ashlar
and coursed sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings. Main elliptical arch-
way about 12 yards to south of which is a similar smaller archway over an
old mill race. Arches are flanked by quadrant piers and have embattled
parapets above corbel tables. Main archway is about 22 yards long and
smaller archway is about ten yards long. The linking section of bridge has
a parapet with a ridged coping. At each end of the bridge, the parapet is
splayed, also has a ridged coping and terminates in a square pier with a
shallow pyramidal capping. Beneath the linking section of the bridge and
north of the main archway is a round-arched flood outlet. The bridge is
about 80 yards long in total and about five yards wide. The bridge stands
on the Downton Castle (qv) estate and may also have been designed by Richard
Payne Knight together with Burrington Bridge (qv) and Castle Bridge (qv)
upstream. The surveyor of the bridge is recorded as being called Pritchard,
possibly Thomas Farnolls Pritchard who designed the Iron Bridge at Coalbrook-
dale 1775 - 77, and built after his death in 1777. (Also see under Leintwardine
CP). (BoE, p 118).
