Description

19th century. Tall single span segmental arched bridge with later additions carrying Burntisland-Cowdenbeath road above a cart track. Tooled, coursed sandstone to bridge, parapet and splayed swept down wing walls. 6 added retaining segmental arches springing from wall set under main arch, added retaining segmental arch with side supports abutting wing walls to either side.

Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as Cullalo Dry Bridge. B-group with Cullaloe Farmhouse, Cullaloe Lodge, Cullaloe Tower and Cullaloe Temple. The Burntisland-Cowdenbeath road runs along a raised embankment which divides the farmland beneath. The bridge with its cart track allows a through passageway under the road enabling the farmer to drive cattle, carts etc. from one side of his land to the other without the road proving a difficult and dangerous obstruction, the track finally terminates at the farm. At some point after the bridge was built it must have become necessary to provide further strength and support to the bridge, 8 retaining arches line the opening at mid-height. The cart track is no longer used and the bridge is barred by makeshift fencing to either side, (2002).
