5/102 Helland Bridge


Road bridge over the River Allan (also know as Camel). Circa early C15. Local slate
stone rubble with granite dressings. 4 pointed dressed stone arches, each of 15 feet
span with large cutwaters between the central cutwater projecting 5 feet and the two
to the left and right slightly less.
The 2 arches on the north have 2 arch rings of slate voussoirs. To the north, the
west wall has a corbelled granite lintel with evidence of rebuilding, possibly after
the 1847 flood. Narrow 9 1/2 foot roadway with the cutwaters continuity up to form
refuges. Stone rubble parapets with chamfered granaite coping.
Henderson quotes the Patent Rolls of 1381 refering to Stephen Dyer of Hellond Brigge
and Leyland's description of Helham as "the first memorable bridge on Alaine".
Situated on the parish boundary and partly in Helland parish.
