28-APR-69 SHILVINGTON BRIDGE
Bridge, probably of C18 date.
Road bridge constructed from squared stone. It has a 3-centred arch with arch ring and keystone. There is a further segmental flood arch, with arch ring, to the north. On the west side there is a curved projection with refuge between the arches. The parapets splay out at the ends, with square coping of blocks linked by iron clamps. The bridge was in poor structural condition at time of survey, with several inserted iron ties.
