Statement of Interest

A fine, late 19th century bridge occupying a prominent and picturesque position on the southern approach to Clova village. The Ordnance Survey maps indicate that this bridge replaced an earlier footbridge, thereby making wheeled access to Clova possible from both the North and South sides of the river.
