1816/0/10039 Collins Bridge over River Yeo

Bridge spanning the River Yeo to the east of Congresbury. Probably late-C18 or early-C19. Local stone cut and squared. It has a single span arch of approximately 7m consisting of a single row of voussoirs on either side. There is no parapet: whether one existed is unclear.

HISTORY: This bridge is situated on a footpath that crosses the River Yeo. It is one of three small-scale bridges located in close proximity to each other which span the river to the east and south east of the village. Collins Bridge is shown on the 1885 Ordnance Survey map and was probably constructed in the late-C18 or early-C19.

REASON FOR DESIGNATION DECISION: Collins Bridge to the east of Congresbury is designated at Grade II, for the following principal reasons:
* It is a substantially intact late-C18 or early-C19 bridge over the River Yeo
* It possesses strong group value with other bridges of a similar date and style.
* It is an unusual survival on account of its unmetalled surface and the presence of an associated track that has similarly escaped strengthening or upgrading.
