Bridge over River Yeo


Bridge across the River Yeo at Congresbury. c.1800. Dressed Pennant stone, rubble infill. A single span arch approx. 3 m. wide, with a span of approx. 4 m., consisting of a single row of voussoirs on either side. There is no parapet: whether one existed, and has been knocked into the river, is unclear. To the east side is a slightly projecting keystone.
HISTORY: this bridge is understood to pre-date a map of 1835. It lies on the route of a drover's road and is an unusual survival on account of its unmetalled surface and the presence of an associated track that has similarly escaped strengthening or upgrading.
