Little Durnford Bridge
Accommodation bridge over River Avon. C18, parapets possibly rebuilt later.
Limestone. Four low segmental arches with flush voussoirs carrying large
squared limestone blocks beneath a continuous moulded horizontal string with
projecting brackets or corbels over each cutwater; above this the parapet,
c800 mm high from roadway, in in squared stone of a different quarry, to
chamfered coping with flat top. At each end parapet terminates in square
pier set at a slight angle; on three abutments large squared blocks follow
the alignments of the river banks for c 3 or 4 m, with no cappings or copings.
On the south-east abutment is a length of wall at coping height and similar
in detail to the parapet structure, running c 4m beside the river. A
handsome structure apparently in good condition.
