SK 70 NW

3/28 Carr bridge

II

Small bridge. Dated 1770 and 1793. Coursed squared stone and red brick.
A single segmental brick arch springs from stone base and splayed sides.
The narrow pathway is partly cobbled. The keystone on one side is inscribed
'A.B.' over 1770 and 1793. The initials probably refer to Andrew Burnaby
of nearby Baggrave Hall, although the bridge is supposed to have been built
for a Vicar of Lowesby called Carr so that the hunt could more easily cross
Queniborough Brook. Hence perhaps the 2 dates. Bridge stands to W of Carr
Bridge Spinney near a guidepost on the Baggrave-Lowesby footpath.
