6/165 Warwick Bridge
1. 4.57.

Road bridge. Begun 1833, completed 1835, by Francis Giles, built by William
Denton. Red sandstone ashlar. 2 piers with rounded cutwaters supporting 3
shallow segmental arches: bold string course and solid parapets: channelled
joints to masonry and voussoirs. Inscription stone in both parapets records
architect and builder with dates. Carries 2 lines of road traffic. A bridge of
excellent architectural and engineering quality, by the architect of Corby
Bridge. Replaced C16 bridge, slightly upstream, which in turn replaced a
medieval bridge: on an important crossing point over the River Eden for the
approach to Carlisle from the east. Pevsner, Buildings of England, wrongly
ascribes the bridge to Dobson and dates it 1837.
