19/06/75 Archway on street at the entrance to
Park House (Park House not included)
Archway. Late C12, C13 and C17 fragments reconstructed in mid
C19. Limestone ashlar and dressed stone. The archway has a
triangular pediment over an elliptical carriage arch. The arch
has a moulded architrave and keystone carved in the form of a
shield; flanking pilasters with unusual rounded rustication
and bolection moulding over. The pediment has a weathered
cartouche. The jambs and inner side of the archway incorporate
many fragments (capitals, arch mouldings, bases and interlace)
of late C12 and C13 masonry from Keynsham Abbey (qv).
HISTORICAL NOTE: these stone fragments came from a house which
the Bridges family built on the site of the medieval abbey
(pulled down in 1776); they are of great importance as
evidence for the design of the Abbey.
