Listing Text

(East Side)
The Bridge
SK 0085 1/8
This comprises 2 arches spanning the river. Of mediaeval origins, the structure
is of several dates. On the south side there is a cutwater between the segmental
arches, which are about 5 or 6 ft wide, to the north is a wider arch (of the same
span) of almost semi-circular form. A 3rd and higher arch is also to be found
on the western half of the bridge which has been further added to in modern times
by reinforced concrete slabs, on the north side of the western half and the south
side of the eastern half. It is probable that the earliest narrow-arched unit
is a packhorse bridge of historic importance.
