Bridge and sheepwash. Circa 1819 (document). Uncoursed red sandstone
rubble with ashlar coping. Bridge. Circular section under road with
keystone on south side. The eastern branch of the Weir brook flows
under bridge. To south is a wedge-shaped enclosure, defined by walls
about 1.0m high, 10m long on road side and approximately 5m long on south
side. Within the enclosure the brook runs through a stone-lined channel
about 1.5m wide. The enclosure walls step down once on east, west and
south sides. Roughly in the centre of the south side is a sluice with
timber gate above. The parapet of the bridge completes the enclosure
on the north side and there are timber picket gates at the east and west
ends of the wall. The sheep entered the water from the eastern side
(where a depression is still visible) and came out on the west. In
use until c.1940. The Old Rectory is not included in this list. V.E.
