Multi-span bridge known as Ellastone Bridge.

Reasons for Designation

Multi-span bridges are structures of two or more arches supported on piers. The multi-span bridge known as Ellastone Bridge survives well as a good example of an 18th century bridge which may retain medieval features behind the present structure or survive as archaeological deposits beneath.

This record was the subject of a minor enhancement on 2 June 2015. This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records.

The monument includes a multi-span road bridge spanning the River Dove. The bridge is constructed of coursed sandstone blocks and includes four segmental arches with raised plain hoodmoulds and keystones, central triangular cutwaters raised to the parapet level, plain parapets with a continuous band above the arches. The southern end of the bridge has curving walls. At the northern end of the bridge a large stone block has a date of 1777 inscribed but an earlier medieval structure may predate the present structure. The monument is also classed as two Grade II listed buildings as the county border between Staffordshire and Derbyshire runs along the river at this point.
