II

Road bridge over River Parrett. C18, widened in 1880. Ham stone ashlar. Semi-circular arch: plain parapets with iron cramps, returned on curves at each corner to conform to bank seating.

The road was the recognised Wells/Dorchester route in 1675 (Ogilby) but was never turnpiked and lost its importance: it was widened in 1880 by the Crewkerne Highway Board at a cost of £14.

The asset was previously listed twice also under the parish of West Chinnock, at List entry 1176985. This entry was removed from the List on 14 December 2017.

This entry was subject to a Minor Amendment on 14 December 2017.
