1/39 West bridge over
River Poulter

Road bridge. Dated 1789. Red brick, faced with ashlar and rock
face ashlar. West side has 3 red brick arches faced with ashlar,
with rock face ashlar architraves. Flanking each arch are single
rock face ashlar piers, 4 in total, these rise to the top of the
balustraded ashlar parapet which rests on a rock face ashlar
band. In the base of the piers are single round arched niches
rising to the band. Either side are single coped ashlar swept
walls which have a plain band extending from the band of the
bridge. These terminate in single circular piers with moulded
tops. The left/north rock face ashlar pier has a plaque with
family crest of Pelham Clinton, Dukes of Newcastle of Clumber
Park, dated 1789. The east side corresponds to the west, however
there is no rock face ashlar, nor dated plaque and flanking the
arches are single culverts with round arches. Under the arches
the river flows in cascades down steps.
