(east side)
7/101 Pedestrian Bridge
over disused rail
line, c75 metres
east of Church of
St Mary
- II
Pedestrian bridge over former railway lines. Mid C19. Cast and wrought iron,
a very flat elliptical arch span to straight stair flights to quarter landings,
forming a Z-plan. Ten square newels to ball finials, and two with original
lanterns, later modified for electricity; landing carried on 8 slender
Corinthiansque columns. 23 steps in straight flights and 6 steps to slightly
bowed deck to main span, all with iron lattice balustrade and S-supports; handrail
and strings from T-section iron. This a very complete survival, elegant and
of great economy in engineering design. Lanterns and standards from SUN FOUNDRY.
