4/23 Lamb Bridge

Bridge, 1819 by Ignatius Bonomi for John Lambton, later 1st Earl of Durham.
Slightly hump-backed, single-track bridge over the River Wear. Ashlar sandstone;
dressed stone end walls with cast-iron railings.

Both faces identical. Slightly-pointed, 25-metre span arch with roll-moulded
arch band. Parapet and band at road level are raked down in a series of steps
to either side of apex. Parapet has chamfered coping and splayed ends.
Rectangular-plan end abutments rise to form pedestals flanking roadway; each
pedestal has cornice and a carved stone lamb. Low, splayed end walls with
flat coping and railings. Railings have alternating arcaded and wavy bars,
a double top rail with scrollwork infill and similar square-plan end posts.

This bridge straddles the parishes of Bournmoor and North Lodge.
