4/9 Aveton Gifford bridges
Also in Churchstow c.p.
Two bridges over River Avon and mill leat. Contains some late mediaeval fabric,
but widened and extended in early C19. Rubble. At the north end, over former
mill leat, 2 segmental arches to flush voussoirs and triangular cutwater; near
horizontal squared parapet runs down to Bridge House on the west side, and
continuously from turning to Marsh Mill towards south. At south end a six-arch
bridge, one of these mostly absorbed in later embankment, flush voussoirs,
triangular cutwaters; parapet walls continuous on east side linking with parapet
to north bridge, and taken along to garage forecourt on west side. Parapet wall
has series of vertical through stones in regular bays, characteristic of bridges
in the area. The ford is said to have been first bridged c.1440; a major
widening of c.2 m occurred on the upstream side. Crossing still of importance
and heavily used.
