KILLINGHALL RIPON ROAD SE 25 NE (east side, off)

4/40 Killinghall Bridge 15.3.66

- II

Bridge over River Nidd. C17 or earlier with C18 and C19 alterations.

Coursed squared gritstone and ashlar. 2 segmental arches span the river; 4 similar lower dry arches to north. A massive triangular cutwater on the upstream (west) side is carried up as a pilaster to coping level, similar pilsters between most arches; the northern half of this face is rebuilt, with rock-faced replacing smooth ashlar. The parapet projects slightly and has a flat coping. Downstream (east) face: the voussoirs are set back slightly from the face of the bridge; large cutwater as west face. 4 deep ribs on the underside of the eastern side indicate the size of the earliest bridge; it was widened upstream probably in the C18 and the northern approach raised in the C19 or C20. It was replaced in the mid C20 by a new bridge upstream. Straddles the boundary with Ripley parish.
