LOWER HEYFORD OXFORD CANAL
SP4824
10/71 Bridge at junction with
Station Road, plus approach
walls.
GV II

Canal bridge. Circa 1790, altered C19. Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar
dressings. Wide segmental arch with ashlar voussoirs springs from projecting
wedge-shaped imposts, linked to a projecting keyblock by a plain hood. Both
keyblocks are inscribed "7", but a cast-iron plate on the north face is
inscribed "206". South parapet has been altered in alignment to correspond with
an adjacent later bridge (not included). North parapet extends approximately 40
metres to east as a rubble retaining wall and links with the front garden wall
of Canal Cottage, Station Road (q,v.); western end of parapet curves round
beside a ramped approach from the towpath.
