SX75NE Yeo Bridge


Road bridge over Harbourne River. Dated 1688, widened on north side circa
early C19. Slate rubble, single span with segmental arch. The voussoirs are
long slates. The bridge appears to have originally been hump-backed and the
original parapet survives with vertical slate coping and with inscription
tablet on south side over the arch. The abutments were lengthened and the
parapets raised over the abutments when the bridge was widened on the north
side with a segmental arch with dressed stone voussoirs and vertical slates
in the parapet.
The tablet above arch on the south side is inscribed: "New built at the
Counteys charges 1688 John Symons Gent, John Richards Tresurer"
Only briefly mentioned by Henderson and Jervoise - "had early in nineteenth
centure a single arch of 13 feet span cvarrying a 15 feet roadway".
