849-1/7/142 Gulwell Bridge


Bridge across River Ashburn. Probably C18 (1775 or earlier).
Stone rubble. Consists of a single segmental arch with
well-cut voussoirs and raised keystone on both sides. Parapets
with copings of roughly-squared blocks of stone. The SE
parapet is extended N where the river runs alongside the road.
On top of one coping-stone of this parapet is incised the date
1775 and the initials CCS and PS; the inscription is enclosed
in ornate brackets in the manner of a cartouche. On the
upstream side the river bank has an old cobble surface,
presumably intended to guard against erosion.
