Skell approximately 350
metres south-east of

metres to south
Ford and bridge. Ford c1740 for John Aislabie, bridge probably before 1781
for William Aislabie. Ford: gritstone setts flanked by curbstones.
Approximately 3 metres wide. For further details see ford 150 metres south-
east of Lake outlet. Bridge: gritstone rubble and boulders, with tufa
blocks. Single-span shallow segmental arch with dressed rubble and
voussoir. Rubble crest to parapet, large worn boulders as terminals. The
stones are mortared but carefully built up to give the appearance of dry
walling. The bridge carries a narrow bridle or pedestrian pathway and
replaced one of c1740 built in a Chinese Chippendale style,
(W T C Walker, personal communication). The route led to the pagoda in the
Chinese Wood further east (demolished). This bridge carries a rich growth
of plants, the effect of carefully recessed pointing.
