Bridge over river Lune. 1872. For Earl of Bective. Rock-faced stone with
ashlar dressings and parapet. 2 double-chamfered segmental arches with 4 ribs,
and smaller segmental arch to north-east end to take flood water, which has
hoodmoulds. Pier between 2 equal arches has triangular cutwaters chamfered back
to form canted refuges; flanking abutments canted, that to north-east with
triangular cutwater upstream. Corbelled embattled parapets, raised to abutments
and refuges, loopholes to abutments. Smaller arch has panels with armorial
bearings above, and embattled parapet. Refuges have dates to insides of
parapets, 1872 to south-east side, 1875 to north-west side. Built at the cost
of £10,000 on the Underley Park estate. The design is based on that of Devil's
Bridge (q.v.), the rhythm of which it copies.
