C19, ashlar and rubble stone. Principal bridge, over Avon, is of
4 rebated pointed arches with cutwaters on upstream side,
downstream side has heavy centre of pier with stepped top and 2
right arches are slightly forward of the left pair. Parapet. To
north, about 19m of rubble stone walling, to south about 68m of
similar walling, walling pierced with square holes for floodwater,
linking to second bridge over tributary. Five arches, ashlar, the
north pair are early C19 round-arched and brick lined. Band
parapet. Inscription 'G. Banks 1809'. The following three
arches are pointed and rebated with upstream cutwater, downstream
stepped pier, and parapet. To south about 24m of rubble stone
Originally known as Foot Bridge. Surviving records of the C17
indicate that for much of the C17 the Bridge was too dilapidated to
be passable to wheeled traffic, and therefore much of the present
fabric must be later restoration.
