KNOCKIN, Bridge and watering place for cattle approx. 50m south of Church of St Mary

(formerly listed as Watering place for cattle and road bridge south of Knockin Church)




Bridge and watering place for cattle. Early C19. Uncoursed red sandstone
rubble with thin coping. Bridge. Segmental arch without keystones.
To south is a semicircular enclosure with walls about 1m high. West
branch of Weir Brook enters enclosure under bridge and exits at southern
end through segmental arch-way infilled above stream with a wooden open.
picket grille; entry to watering place at east and west ends of road
parapet wall. Circa 8cm diameter semi-circular depressions in parapet
of south wall are said to have been caused by the friction of wire-bound
hose pipes when steam engines were topped up with water at this point.
