Central and easternmost "Packhorse Bridges" and adjoining causeway
(formerly listed as Pack horse bridges, E side of group).
2 humpback bridges and adjoining causeway: probably later C18.
Dressed tooled red sandstone blocks. Bridge over the main channel of
the River Gowy has a recessed segmental arch on mass concrete
footings, plain parapet and chamfered coping joined by iron ties.
Parapet turns and drops to form revetment walls, to approaches on
either side. A contemporary stone-revetted causeway runs east to a
second smaller bridge over clogged side channel. This is similar
except for 2 triangular buttresses on the north side.
The westernmost "Packhorse Bridge" and part of one of these bridges
are in Cotton Edmunds parish.
