Built in 1866 when the church was built by J.W. Poundley and D. Walker, connecting the church with The Hall, built by the same architects in 1867.


A single-span footbridge of coursed rock-faced stone, with square terminal piers. A round arch has a prominent keystone. A raised band is beneath the coped parapet, which has a shield on the S side. On the churchyard side are iron gates. On the SE side of the bridge are 3 bays of iron railings on rock-faced dwarf walls with intermediate square piers, similar to the S churchyard wall. The wall returns to the E, where there is a small low round-headed niche with drinking trough, which is inscribed '1866', and freestone piers at the rear entrance to the Hall.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a well-detailed bridge and railings of definite quality, for group value with the church, and for its contribution to the historic character of the village.
