- Revetment to outer bank of
moat surrounding
Helmingham Hall, and two
attached bridges

GV II

Revetments to moat, c.1760. Each section is about 50m long. Red brick. On
the north, east, and west arms, the walling rises about 0.5m above water level
with a sawtooth band beneath a gabled coping. (Part of the east arm has lm
high walling). On the south side the wall rises to about 2.5m above water
level and has semi-circular brick on edge copings. At each corner is an
obelisk surmounting a square pier. At the centre of the south side is a
bridge in cast iron, added by John Nash (in the Gothick manner) c.1800.
Octagonal brick piers rise from the moat to carry the main span. The
elliptical arch beneath the bridge has open arched infill to the spandrels,
and the sides of the platform have a quatrefoil frieze. Open arcaded
balustrading. A short span connects the bridge to the south bank, but the
drawbridge is the only link with the main gatehouse 2m to the north. A second
near-identical bridge spans the east arm of the moat near the north end; its
terminal piers on the east bank are octagonal and also by Nash.
