3/6 Castle Bridge (that part
in Burrington CP)(formerly
11.6.59 listed in Downton CP)
Accommodation bridge over the River Teme. Late C18. Sandstone ashlar with
horizontal tooling. Three elliptical arches, the central one of which is
larger than the flanking arches, splayed at ends and terminating in rectangular
piers with flat capping. The bridge is about five yards wide and 55 yards long.
The original main southern approach to Downton Castle (qv) crossed the River
Teme at Castle Bridge. It was probably also designed by Richard Payne Knight
together with Forge Bridge (qv) downstream and possibly Burrington Bridge (qv)
upstream. (BoE, p 118). [See also under Downton CP].
