SX84NE Blackpool Bridge
Road bridge over a stream known as Blackpool Lake. Probably C18 or early
C19 or C18 with early C19 alterations. Slate rubble. Small segmental arch
and a smaller round flood arch on the east side. The arches have dressed
slate voussoirs. The south side is corbelled out over the main arch, possi-
bly because of road widening. The road level is high above the arches but
the parapets are low and have vertical dressed slate coping with vertical
The improvements to the bridge might have been made for the Knightsbridge-
Dartmouth Turnpike Trust. Jones Green the County Surveyor of Bridges de-
scribed the bridge in 1809 as being 4 feet wide, therefore an earlier bridge
ought to be buried in the later rebuilding.
