The Old Lower Hodder Bridge, Great Mitton / Aighton, Bailey and Chaigley - Ribble Valley

Bridge over the River Hodder, built 1562 in sandstone ashlar. Three segmental arches with triangular cutwaters, and no parapet. The bridge is being damaged by sapling and tree growth. Failing consolidant mortar to the surface of the bridge and missing stones are allowing vegetation to become established and rain entry. A displaced stone in the cutwater may allow water entry when the river is high.
