Bridge across River Don
(formerly listed as Sprotbrough Bridge)

Bridge. Probably 1864 by Benjamin Brundell and William Arnold for Sir Joseph
William Copley (Civic Trust Newsletter); central span replaced 1897 in
ironwork by Newton Chambers of Sheffield. Fabricated iron central span;
rock-faced sandstone walling to piers and flanking causeways. Causeways each
have 3 segmental arches with rusticated voussoirs springing from cavetto-
moulded imposts; brick soffits; some waterspouts in spandrels; cornices
beneath rough-cast parapets with copings which terminate at end piers each
with ashlar frieze and modillioned cornice. Central span has riveted girders
with cross-braced side panels set in rebates in quoined and corniced abutment
piers. Square-latticed balustrade with wooden handrail on downstream side.
Oval plaques at each end of span state:


Spans the River Don and is partly in the parish of Sprotbrough. History
confused by references to Sprotbrough Bridge nearby (mid C19, for same
patron, altered).
