SJ 33 NW
2/12 Lady's Bridge with
attached gate piers, gates
and railings (that part in
St. Martin's C.P.)
Bridge with attached gate piers, gates and railings. Probably c.1808
for Charlotte, Lady Dungannon. Bridge: regularly coursed and dressed
sandstone with ashlar parapet. Single elliptical arch with rusticated
voussoirs and raised keystone; flat string course, pilasters and embattled
parapet, ramped down on west side. Gate piers, gates and railings, situated
on eastern approach. Piers: sandstone ashlar. Square section with moulded
panels to sides; moulded capping and shallow pyramidal caps. Wrought-
iron gates have spiked and arrow-shaped railings; railings with similarly
shaped finials and cylindrical standards at east end. Spur stones on bridge.
According to an inscription at Brynkinalt (Clwyd), Lady Dungannon'embellished'
the associated park between c.1808 and c.1812 and it is likely that the
bridge was built as part of this scheme. Lady's Bridge spans the River
Ceiriog, which here forms the border with Wales. Edward Hubbard, The
Buildings of Wales, Clwyd (1986) pp. 112-13.
