SX 65 SW ERMINGTON

5/261 Thornham Bridge and icehouse adjoining north west

II

Bridge carrying track over River Erme and attached icehouse. Bridge dated 1818. Icehouse later C19. Coursed slate rubble with dressed granite voussoirs to arches and rounded granite coping to parapets. Wide segmental main arch over stream with smaller round flood arch in east abutment. The pier between the two arches is partly ashlar and may be the remains of an earlier bridge. Limestone tablet on the north side over the main arch with inscription and date 1818. The carriageway is quite narrow and carries what is now a grass track. The icehouse attached to the west end of the north side is probably a later C19 addition ; steps lead down to a narrow passage with a cambered brick vault and a niche on the north side of the end. The icehouse probably served Thornham (house), said to have been built in 1796 and extended in late C19.
