SE 25 NE (east side, off)

4/40 Killinghall Bridge

- II

Bridge over River Nidd. C17 or earlier with C18 and C19 alterations.
Coursed squared gritstone and ashlar. 2 segmental arches span the river; 4
similar lower dry arches to north. A massive triangular cutwater on the
upstream (west) side is carried up as a pilaster to coping level, similar
pilsters between most arches; the northern half of this face is rebuilt,
with rock-faced replacing smooth ashlar. The parapet projects slightly and
has a flat coping. Downstream (east) face: the voussoirs are set back
slightly from the face of the bridge; large cutwater as west face. 4 deep
ribs on the underside of the eastern side indicate the size of the earliest
bridge; it was widened upstream probably in the C18 and the northern
approach raised in the C19 or C20. It was replaced in the mid C20 by a new
bridge upstream. Straddles the boundary with Ripley parish.
