5409 WILTON PARK Image Bridge SU 13 SW 1/132



1822. Over River Wylye. Architect Sir Richard Westmacott, builder named Fisher. Stone faced, ashlar below and vermiculated parapet and side piers.

Chiefly notable for 2 large marble statues - probably by Sir Richard which stand on ledge backed by the parapet which is lower in comparison to the statues. Originally intended that the parapet should form a screen behind.

Statues probably represent Ceres (to left) and Bacchus (to right). The bridge is of 3 segmental arches - the centre one taller and wider - pointed breakwater and side piers with slits having rustic voussoirs. Projecting band below parapet. Flanking the central arch are pedestals for the statues. East side plain ashlar.
