5/88 Bridge approx. 700m NE of
National Westminster Bank
Bridge. Early C18, possibly by Thomas Archer for Charles Talbot 1st Duke of
Shrewsbury. Limestone ashlar. Baroque style. Bridge has 3 widely-spaced arches
linked by a convex string, the outer arches semi-circular, the central opening
wider with a depressed arch; all have double-stepped keyblocks and intermittent
voussoirs projecting from an arched band. The solid straight parapet rises over
the central arch and curves outwards at the ends. The bridge now forms a dam
retaining the waters of the lake created c.1750.
(Heythrop Park is included at Grade II* in the English Heritage Register of
Parks and Gardens; VCH: Oxfordshire: Vol II, p131)
