SE 47 SW THORNTON BRIDGE CUNDALL ROAD
2/41 Thornton Bridge
Bridge over River Swale. c.1888, restored 1984. Cast-iron bridge supported on
ashlar abutments. Segmental single-spin arch composed of slender girders, some
with open trellis-work pattern. Spandrels with shield of the City of York.
Trellis-work to parapet. Abutments: plain parapets, copings and terminals. A
report on the condition of Thornton Bridge in 1888 described it as an 'old and
infirm' stone structure. The old bridge was of 3 arches and was described by
Leland in the C17. This crossing of the Swale has considerable local historical
importance. The restoration in 1984 involved the rebuilding of the deck but
retention of original facade.
