4/52 Wath Urn Bridge over Clow

- II

Bridge. Dated 1755, widened 1948. Downstream half: ashlar sandstone.
3 chamfered segmental arches with small triangular cutwaters, the bridge
ends widening in canted form. Between first and second arches a recessed
plaque with moulded frame and inscription "John Place 1755". Band.
Parapet. Slightly segmental-shaped coping to parapet. The bridge, on the
old Great North Road, was doubled in width by the North Riding of Yorkshire
County Council in 1948, using reinforced concrete arches, but the original
upstream parapet seems to have been reset in the new position, and contains
a commemorative inscription. The bridge was damaged by an explosion when a
lorry carring ammunition crashed on it during World War II, the bridge being
very narrow at the time. Partly in the Civil Parish of Aldbrough.
