Listing Text

SE 78 NW
8/96 Bridge approximately
35 metres south-west of
10.11.53 the Village Hall
(formerly listed as
Bridge on Green)
- II
Flood bridge. c1769; partly rebuilt in 1794; restored 1966. Roughly-
dressed sandstone. Single span. Segmental arch of voussoirs approximately
0.7 metre high in the centre of a raised causeway. The bridge and causeway
span a dry ditch and were constructed to provide passage for packhorses
across floodwater from the nearby River Seven. The bridge as built was a
hump-backed packhorse bridge with a segmental arch. Following the silting
up of the original flood channel, the approaches were banked up by spreading
large stones over the causeway, thus reducing the slope of the hump.
Parapets, portions of which remain, were added at this time. J McDonnell

pp 50-53.
