10/130 North Bridge on A4146
22.10.52 at Water End over the
River Gade (Formerly listed as
Two bridges over River Gade)
Road bridge over River Gade. Circa 1800 when road realigned (Branch
Johnson (1970) 113), restored and parapet raised 2 courses 1976 by Herts
County Council. Red brick with random black headers in English-bond with
stone string courses and copings to parapet. A long narrow bridge,
slightly humped to centre, of 3 pointed arches, 4 brick cutwaters, and
brick parapets splaying out at ends and terminating in octagonal brick
piers. The bridge has not been widened and differs from the widened
South Bridge (q.v.) in having brick cappings to the cutwaters and having
its moulded stone string at road level extended along the abutment walls
to the terminal piers. It also has 3 moulded circular cast iron tie-rod
plates over each arch. There is a chamfered brick rib just within the
mouth of each arch. A chamfered stone offset to the plinth provides the
springing for the arches. Plinths linked by a weir near the upstream
side where water level is just below this stone offset. (Branch Johnson
(1970): inf County Surveyor's Dept).
