5/138 Bridge over Avon Navigation, to rear of stable Block

II

Foot bridge over former Avon Navigation. Late C18. Irregular bond brick with limestone dressings. Two round arches with stone voussoirs and keystones, low cutwaters on both sides, rounded bricks to parapet and to angled revetment walls on either side. Heraldic shield in limestone on east face between arches, bears arms of Bouverie and Marsham, dating the bridge to about 1748; Jacob Bouverie married Elizabeth Marsham 1741, and became Viscount Folkestone 1747. The bridge is too low for canal traffic and post- dates the abandonment of the Navigation in the 1730s. (Unpublished records of RCHM (England), Salisbury).
