Listing Text


3/26 Bridge carrying Buerton
Approach over Aldford


Bridge, 1870's, for the 3rd Marquis and 1st Duke of Westminster, by or
in association with Alfred Waterhouse. Buff sandstone with cast iron
parapet panels. Three Tudor arches separated by buttresses standing
on rounded, rusticated cutwaters; the lower courses in the archways
are also rusticated; the arrises of the arches have recessed quadrant
mouldings. The parapets have moulded plinths (carried on carved
heads as corbels) and moulded copings between which are rectangular
panels of cast iron with cusped quatrefoils holding shields with
armorial bearings in relief. The panels were probably part of
Porden's railings, designed circa 1810 for the forecourt of Eaton Hall
and removed by Waterhouse. Two rectangular piers (with one parapet
panel between) at each side of each abutment.
