SJ 45 SW FARNDON C.P. HIGH STREET
2/41 Farndon Bridge (that
part in Cheshire, a scheduled
Ancient Monument )
Bridge circa 1345, of red sandstone. 5 arches over river, 1 flood
arch on east (Farndon) side and 2 on west (Holt) side in Clwyd.
Abutments rebuilt and widened probably early C19. Cutwaters. Deep
segmental arches have 2 rings of voussoirs, the inner ring recessed,
the outer one chamfered. Projecting cyma-moulded band at road level.
The western-most river arch (in Clwyd) has a single ring of voussoirs
rising into the parapet above a flatter (C20?) lower arch. According
to tradition, the bridge was fortified and this altered arch may
replace a draw-span. The western (Clwyd) abutment, at an angle to the
bridge, has a rebuilt eastern flood-arch. Moulded band removed from
abutments/flood arches. Late C20 mild steel rail of 1 bar on each
plain, flush-coped parapet. Between the flood-arches and abutments
the medieval bridge is unwidened and little altered.
