SE21SE WEST BRETTON PARK ROAD (south side, off)

8/97 Cascade Bridge and - weir in Bretton Park

GV II

Bridge and weir. Probably built between 1777 and 1782, the dates of the Upper and Lower Lakes, for Sir Thomas Wentworth. Ashlar. A flat span on short stone piers between which the water flows. Above a string course is a series of sunk panels separated by more piers. The iron railings are probably late C19, plain rails with intermediate panels of geometric design with small urn-like finials. At the north end the railings curve round to terminate at small, square, ashlar piers. The weir is closely stepped in the centre and curves around, at each end, in deeper steps.
