Ford, weir and bridge. Ford and weir c1740 for John Aislabie, bridge probably before 1781 for William Aislabie. Ford and weir: gritstone. Approximately 3 metres wide, large setts flanked by curb stones. Downstream edge forms a weir; partly collapsed at time of resurvey. Further details - see ford 150 metres south-east of Lake outlet. Bridge: gritstone rubble and boulders, with tufa blocks. Single-span shallow segmental arch with dressed rubble and voussoirs. Rubble crest to parapet, large worn boulders as terminals. The stones are mortared but carefully built up to give the appearance of dry walling. The bridge carries a narrow bridle or pedestrian pathway and replaced one of c1740 built in a Chinese Chippendale style (Walker). The route led to the pagoda in the Chinese Wood further east (demolished). W T C Walker, personal communication.
