approximately 275
metres south of Marks
Hall Cottages


Garden bridge. Circa 1800. Red brick with limestone copings and cast iron
railings. Carries an estate road (of Marks Hall Estate) from E to W across
Robin's Brook, width approximately 4.50 metres, length overall approximately 10
metres. Semi-circular arch (damaged on N side) with segmental coping of plain
stone slabs. Cast iron railings each side, made of 6 large sections over the
bridge itself, and 2 straight sections on the road approaches to the bridge,
jointed together and sealed with lead. The NE straight section is dismounted
and damaged at time of survey, March 1987; the SW straight section is missing.
The sections over the bridge are of radial design with a central boss; the
straight sections are of crossed diagonals; 3 plain vertical bars between the
sections, 2 at each end. On the handrail are urn finials, 2 complete and one
damaged on the N side, one damaged finial on the S side; all are mounted in
square mortices and sealed with lead. The bosses are of lion's head design,
sealed with lead into iron rings. On the N (inner) side of the S railing the 6
bosses are complete; on the S side of the same railing are 5 bosses, all but one
cracked. On the S (inner) side of the N railing are 2 intact bosses and 2
damaged; on the N side of the same railing are 4 bosses. The carriageway and
approaches were covered with concrete for wartime use; this could be removed. S
of the bridge the river channel is contained by 2 brick walls with sloping stone
copings terminating in square piers, each with a plain spiked railing with 3
stirrup stays. 3 iron ties through the bridge with simple roundels and square
nuts at each end. Brick dam across N arch.
