SY6873 VERNE ROAD, Yeates 969-1/3/190 Bridge at SY 6923 7333 21/09/78 (Formerly Listed as: VERNE ROAD FOUR BRIDGES OVER FORMER MERCHANT'S TRAMWAY SW OF THE VERNE'S S ENTRANCE)


Road bridge over mineral railway. Dated 1875. Heavy rock-faced squared stone. Single segmental arch with rusticated quoins and voussoirs on plain internal abutments; probably with plinth, but lower parts concealed by raised ground level. Heavy square-edged weathered parapet, which is set at incline following road slope, with a change in the angle of incline above the arch centre; length c 15m. The earliest of three bridges in alignment over the former tramway. Dated 1875 on the road side of the N parapet. Of interest as it is a reminder of the C19 industrial activity in the quarries on the island, when rail and tramways were an important aspect of the transport system.
