740-1/0/10068 Stonehouse Creek Bridge

Bridge. 1767-9; by John Smeaton. Abutments raised circa 1828. Arch blocked, sluices installed and carriageway widened on north side 1966. Limestone rubble with freestone dressings; repaired in concrete. The south side has central round arch with moulded extrados, keystone and flanking rusticated piers. The arcading of the abutments is a result of a raising of the abutments and a widening of the bridge in about 1828. When the bridge was widened for dual carriageways in about 1966 the parapet was replaced by railings and the north side was buried in earth.
Although altered Stonehouse Bridge is a good example of an C18 bridge by a major Georgian engineer.
