Leintwardine CP)


Road bridge and weir across River Teme. Circa 1772. By Richard Payne Knight
and Thomas Farnolls Pritchard. Squared sandstone rubble and brick with sand-
stone dressings. Alignment is north/south. Large semi-circular arch with
dressed voussoirs and projecting keystone spans the main river course
springing from stepped imposts. It is flanked by square embattled turrets
with part-pyramidical cappings and has flat pointed embattled parapet with

of brick and sandstone. (BoE, p 118).
