Description

Late 18th century. Single span bridge over Calder Water. Dressed stone; corniced arch.

Statement of Interest

In 1792, General Torrance moved his cotton mill from Cotton Square to Newhouse to utilise the waterpower of the Calder Water. The lands at Newhouse were part of the Torrance estate and in the 1740s a manse had been erected for the minister of the Parish Church. However, the house was vacated in 1790, a factor which probably further encouraged the General to move his mill to the site. The mill is clearly marked on the 1st edition OS Map, but has since been cleared away for modern housing. However, three workers' cottages that were built in 1792 still remain. It is thought that the current bridge was built to service the mill.
