PORTLAND

SY6873 VERNE ROAD, Yeates
969-1/3/190 Bridge at SY 6923 7333
21/09/78
(Formerly Listed as:
VERNE ROAD
FOUR BRIDGES OVER FORMER MERCHANT'S
TRAMWAY SW OF THE VERNE'S S ENTRANCE)

GV II

Road bridge over mineral railway. Dated 1875. Heavy rock-faced
squared stone. Single segmental arch with rusticated 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 c 15m. The earliest of three
bridges in alignment over the former tramway. Dated 1875 on
the road side of the N parapet. 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.
