- II

Road bridge over railway and River Yeo. Circa 1850 snecked local mudstone including
rock-faced ashlar quoins, voussoirs, drip course and coping and a very small amount
of C20 brick mending. Tall bridge of 4 spans carried on plain rectangular piers
with simple imposts and segmental-arched vaults. The pier set in the river stands
on a slightly wider starling with pointed cutwaters either end. At either end of
the bridge the abutments project a little and are very slightly battered as they
rise past the plain dripcourse at road level to serve as terminals for the parapet.
The stone parapet has flat coping with narrow chamfered edges. The road ramps
slightly over the river but is flat over the railway and this is reflected in the
dripcourse and parapet.
