3/7 Haselbury Old Bridge
(formerly listed as Haselbury

Road bridge over River Parrett. Probably C14. Ham stone ashlar. Two chamfered orders to 2 segmental arches divided by
angled cutwaters on each side: simple plain parapet, the south-west corner splayed to accommodate road junction, and
both stepped up in centre allowing for the hill slope: plain top. This was the established Salisbury/Exeter route by
1675, and this bridge marked the boundary between the Chard (later Crewkerne) and Yeovil Trusts, both founded 1753. It
also marks the boundary between Haselbury Plucknett C.P. and Merriott C.P. The bridge repaired 1844 at cost of forty
pounds, soon after it had been bypassed by the main Crewkerne to Yeovil road some 150m to the south (Bentley J.B and
Murless B.J, Somerset Roads, SIAS, 1985).
