Statement of Interest

Most unusual bridge. No drawings nor documentation survive.

It is just possible that the lower arch is earlier, but when

the mansion was built and a carriage drive required, the

second tier was added to accommodate horse drawn vehicles

(lower bridge would have had too steep approach over gorge

for these). The approach from the west to Letterfourie was by

this route.
