Newsham Bridge, Brocklesby Park, Brocklesby - West Lindsey

Late C18 gothic bridge, circa 1772, probably designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Brown's work at Brocklesby Park included the extension of Newsham Lake, in the C17 and C18 parkland to the east of the Hall. Stonework chipped, details broken away. Prone to vandalism. Cap removed from one end of the piers. A condition survey has been carried out. Saplings and weed growth removed. Natural England Stewardship scheme. Bridge deck cleared of debris which has reduced water ingress.
