Hall
GV II

Estate bridge. 1870's or 1880's, probably by George Devey and incorporating
parts of an earlier bridge. Coursed red sandstone rubble with red
sandstone ashlar dressings and late C19 squared and thinly coursed red
sandstone parapet and retaining walls. 2 chamfered segmental-arches,
that to north larger. Angled retaining walls to abutments. Late C19
wooden 3-bar gate at south end. A map kept at the hall and dated
1714 shows the Shrewsbury-Pitchford road passing over the Row Brook at
this point. The present bridge probably incorporates part of this
earlier bridge although now it merely serves to give access to the park.
The type of C19 masonry matches that used by Devey in his alterations
and additions at Pitchford Hall (qv) in the late C19. V.C.H., Vol VIII,
pp.117-8.
