Details

GREAT GADDESDEN LEIGHTON BUZZARD ROAD (A4146) TL 0310 10/130 North Bridge on A4146 22.10.52 at Water End over the River Gade (Formerly listed as Two bridges over River Gade) GV II

Road bridge over River Gade. Circa 1800 when road realigned (Branch Johnson (1970) 113), restored and parapet raised 2 courses 1976 by Herts County Council. Red brick with random black headers in English-bond with stone string courses and copings to parapet. A long narrow bridge, slightly humped to centre, of 3 pointed arches, 4 brick cutwaters, and brick parapets splaying out at ends and terminating in octagonal brick piers. The bridge has not been widened and differs from the widened South Bridge (q.v.) in having brick cappings to the cutwaters and having its moulded stone string at road level extended along the abutment walls to the terminal piers. It also has 3 moulded circular cast iron tie-rod plates over each arch. There is a chamfered brick rib just within the mouth of each arch. A chamfered stone offset to the plinth provides the springing for the arches. Plinths linked by a weir near the upstream side where water level is just below this stone offset. (Branch Johnson (1970): inf County Surveyor's Dept).
