WETHERAL A69, WARWICK BRIDGE NY 45 NE

6/165 Warwick Bridge 1. 4.57. II

Road bridge. Begun 1833, completed 1835, by Francis Giles, built by William Denton. Red sandstone ashlar. 2 piers with rounded cutwaters supporting 3 shallow segmental arches: bold string course and solid parapets: channelled joints to masonry and voussoirs. Inscription stone in both parapets records architect and builder with dates. Carries 2 lines of road traffic. A bridge of excellent architectural and engineering quality, by the architect of Corby Bridge. Replaced C16 bridge, slightly upstream, which in turn replaced a medieval bridge: on an important crossing point over the River Eden for the approach to Carlisle from the east. Pevsner, Buildings of England, wrongly ascribes the bridge to Dobson and dates it 1837.
