11/1 Clifton Hampden Bridge


Bridge. c. 1864. By Sir Gilbert Scott, built by Richard Casey, for Henry Hucks
Gibbs. Red brick with random flared headers in Flemish bond. Bridge of 6 ribbed
4-centred arches with angled cut-waters between. Arches have moulded brick
surrounds. Bracketed parapet with string-course to base and moulded brick
coping. History: the bridge replaced a ford and ferry. Henry Hucks Gibbs was
Lord of the Manor. The bricks were made at Clifton Heath. Sir Gilbert Scott also
designed other buildings in the parish. This is probably the only bridge Scott
(V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol.7, 1962, p.16-17; D. Cole, "The Works of Sir Gilbert
Scott", 1980, p.124).
