8/95 Bridge over the Cut
- (east end) in Bretton


Bridge. Probably early to mid C19 for Col. Thomas Richard and Diana
Beaumont. Ashlar. Hump-backed bridge of 3 round arches, the centre one the
largest, each with a small moulding and decorative frieze. Triangular
cutwaters. Vermiculated panels at the springing of the arches and similar
oval panels in the spandrels. A band decorated with a Vitruvian scroll motif
forms the base of the parapet. The original vase-balustrade has been
replaced by a simple steel railing, though the intermediate piers survive.
At each end the bridge splays to terminate in squat octagonal piers each
surmounted by a large urn with a fluted base of gadrooned cap.
