SY6873 VERNE ROAD, Yeates
969-1/3/194 Bridge at SY 6923 7324
Road bridge over mineral railway. Late C19. Heavy rock-faced
squared stone. Single segmental arch with rusticared quoins
and voussoirs on plain internal abutments; probably with
plinth, but lower parts concealed by raised ground level.
Heavy square-edged weathered parapet, which is set at incline
following road slope, with a change in the angle of incline
above the arch centre; length c15m. Sited to the south west of
three bridges in alignment over the former tramway. Of
interest as it is a reminder of the C19 industrial activity in
the quarries on the island, when rail and tramways were an
important aspect of the transport system.
