SE 3457 KNARESBOROUGH HIGH BRIDGE

6/112 High Bridge over River Nidd (formerly listed as 5.2.52 High Bridge)

GV II

Bridge. Rebuilt 1773, with C19 and C20 widening and restoration. Coursed squared gritstone. 2 segmental arches with rock-faced voussoirs. Pointed cutwaters to both sides. Original narrow arches have chamfered ribs and may be medieval. Widened twice upstream and footpath built out over cutwaters downstream. The bridge was probably rebuilt as part of the establishment of a network of turnpike roads completed in 1777. B Jennings, Harrogate and Knaresborough, 1970, p 234.
