9/70 Marske Bridge



Bridge. C15, widened upstream mid-late C19. Ashlar. Single segmental
arch. Downstream elevation: chamfered arch with hoodmould, which cuts into
band below later parapet, the ends of which are splayed on corbelled
abutments so widening the plan area of the road. Upstream elevation:
chamfered rusticated voussoirs to arch which is flanked by pilaster
buttresses; deeply-projecting torus band below parapet which is of smooth
ashlar. Both parapets have segmental coping. Under the soffit are 5
chamfered ribs on the downstream side; the upstream half of the bridge has
chamfered rusticated banding across the soffit. There is a stile at the
north-west corner, giving access to steps which lead down to the bank of
Marske Beck. The bridge was repaired in 1588 and 1688. Scheduled as an
Ancient Monument. Jervoise, Ancient Bridges of the North of England,
(1931), p 86.
