POTTEN END Nettleden

3/223 Bridge over road and
- revetments to cutting,
160m to S of Nettleden Road


Flyover bridge to carry former principal drive to Ashridge over a local
road artifically sunk here with revetted sides. Early C19, probably by
James Wyatt, for Earl of Bridgewater c.1808. Bridge of red brick in
English-bond with Portland stone string course, piers and hogsback-
section coping between: revetments of similar brick and bond with large
panels of uncoursed knapped flints. A Tudor-arched bridge of about 4m
span and 3.5m height to springing of arch, built in 6 segments stepping
up the slope southwards, and supporting a wide carriageway for the
former drive running E-W at the upper level. The low brick parapets
with splayed ends were broken by 4 tall Gothic stone piers on each side
with cusped panels in each face and cross-gabled tops. The lower halfs
remain but the upper parts lie tumbled in the vicinity. The deep cutting
with revetted sides extends for some distance.
