7/103 Fordton Bridge


Road bridge over River Yeo. Probably C18 possibly earlier, widened on east side in
C20. Volcanic ashlar to arches and cutwaters, otherwise volcanic rubble and some
C20 concrete. 4-span bridge of segmental arches with chamfered double arch rings.
Cutwaters between are carried up to parapet providing refuges. Road and parapet
rise to centre. Coping is steeply weathered on both sides. Bridge widened on east
side in C20 with flat concrete lintels and buttresses although parapet rebuilt
similarly to original.
An earlier Fordton bridge was recorded as being in decay in 1668.
