Listing Text

23.4.52 Harford Bridge


Roadbridge over River Erme.
Circa C17. Granite rubble with dressed granite arches. Two round arches with
recessed arch rings, the west a much smaller flood arch. Cutwater on both sides.
Parapets with chamfered granite coping, splayed at either end over the abutments.
A bridge existed on this site in C16 and some of the fabric may be of this date.
Circa 1668/9 the bridge was repaired and the present bridge may be a rebuild of that
date. The smaller flood arch appears to be later and the bridge has been widened on
the upstream side.
