SE 51 SW Bridge at south
entrance to farmyard
of Campsmount Home Farm
Bridge. Mid-late C18. By John Carr (Connor, p132) for the Campsmount
estate. Red brick arch, otherwise rubble limestone with ashlar sandstone
dressings. Single-span basket arch carrying farm track over a gully; twin
parapet walls with planting beds between. Arch has ashlar springers and
alternately-raised, block-bonded brick voussoirs; band beneath coped outer
parapet walls terminating at square end piers with domed caps; inner parapets
line the farm track and curve to meet the end piers. Impressive landscape
structure of the estate now despoiled by tipping in the gully. Campsmount,
home of the Yarborough and Cooke-Yarborough families was demolished in 1959.
Connor notes that drawings of the bridge signed 'JC', survive in the
Yarborough papers.
