4/1 Wath Urn Bridge over Clow
Bridge. Dated 1755, widened 1948. Downstream half: ashlar sandstone. 3
segmental arches with small triangular cutwaters, the bridge ends widening
in canted form. Between first and second arches a recessed plaque with
moulded frame and inscription "John Place 1755". Band. Parapet. Slightly-
segmental-shaped coping to parapet. The bridge, on the old Great North
Road, was doubled in width by the North Riding of Yorkshire County Council
in 1948, using reinforced concrete arches, but the original upstream parapet
seems to have been reset in the new position, and contains a commemorative
inscription. The bridge was damaged by an explosion when a lorry carrying
ammunition crashed on it during World War II, the bridge being very narrow
at the time. Partly in the Civil Parish of Manfield.
