1/185 Bridge approximately 130 metres
south-east of Wood House
Bridge over the overflow stream out the north-west side of the landscaped lake.
1899-1905 by Thomas Mawson. Granite ashlar. Simple single span bridge with plain
segmental arch. Plain projecting dripcourse at road level supported by a series of
small corbels between the terminal piers project outwards and provide inside refuges
with stone benches.
This bridge is part of an extensive landscaping scheme conceived by Mawson to go
with the rebuilding of Rood House (q.v.). The landscaping of the nearby lake was an
important component of the scheme. Mawson himself considered the whole scheme as
one of his major achievements.
