Canal road bridge, now redundant. Circa 1779. Coursed dressed and
squared stone. Labelled, roughly 3-centred arch, flat-top parapet
humped over span and slightly curved out at ends. The Cherryeye
bridge received its name on account of its use as an access route
to a nearby ironstone mine (now disused) by the miners who on their
return home had a distinctly cherryeye appearance from the ironstone
dust. The Caldon Canal was built to carry limestone from Caldon Low
and was completed to Froghall by 1779. First surveyed by James
Brindley, succeeded by Henshaw and completed by John Rennie circa
