"Packhorse Bridges".
(formerly listed as
Pack-horse bridges, west
side of group of 3).


Humpback bridge over drain: probably later C18. Dressed tooled red
sandstone blocks. Recessed segmental arch carries a plain parapet
with a chamfered coping joined by iron ties. On the north side the
abutments step forward, the south side is flush. Parapets follow the
line of the bridge down and end at square blocks. Small stone sets
and cobbles form the carriageway.

Similar and contemporary to the other 2 bridges, item 2/32.
