656-1/36/1855 Bridge


Accommodation bridge over canal. Dated 1728 (the Avon Navigation was opened in 1727). By John Padmore, engineer. Squared and coursed rubble, some ashlar. A single-span bridge with slightly elliptical and eccentric arch, with lower springing to the north than the south side, perhaps resulting from early settlement. The arch in concentric ashlar voussoirs, and, on the east side, a near-central projecting keystone with date incised; the west side also has an off-centre projecting keystone, but without date. The parapets rise to a slight peak at the centre of the span, with dressed copings, and are swept round to short returns at the south end. At the north end, adjacent to The Dolphin public house (qv), the parapet walls are stopped square, and short straight lengths of raked ashlar wall with flush rounded copings abut on each side. The short length of canal here, sometimes known as Locksbrook Cut, by-passed a bend and weir in the River Avon.
