History

Probably contemporary with the former Emral Hall and associated stable ranges which were designed by Richard Trubshaw and Joseph Evans; the house was built between 1724 and 1727 and the stable courtyard between 1730 and 1735. This bridge carried the main drive to the house. The original design included 'pepper-pot' guardrooms to the north and south sides but these have been demolished as has Emral Hall itself in 1936. A cell at the western end of the bridge is said to have been occasionally used as a prison.

Exterior

Single-span semi-circular arched stone bridge surmounted by low parapet walls of brick with stone dressings; these parapet walls continue into the stable courtyard. At the western end is a small cell.

Reasons for Listing

Included for group value with the North and South Stable Blocks at Emral Hall as part of a designed C18 group associated with the architect Richard Trubshaw.
