Tone Bridge
ST 2724 NE 9/393
Large girder bridge built 1895 to the designs of J H Smith and carrying the main
road north over the River Tone. Slightly curved roadway constructed of large girders
supported by 2 rows of circular columns with weatherings. On the outer side these
columns support piers with large volutes and shields containing the Taunton Borough's
coat of arms. The piers are surmounted by 4 good double lamp standards with entwined
dolphins and scallop shells at bases, scrolled foliage to globe brackets and finials.
These globe lamps are said to be part of the earliest electric street lighting
installed in a town in Britian. (see under the Parade). Good ironwork handrails
flank roadway, turned balusters with crocket capitals and openwork panels comparable
to the Vivary Park gates.

Tone Bridge and Nos 5 to 9 (odd) The Bridge (West Side) form a group.
