2/41 Farndon Bridge (that part in Cheshire, a scheduled Ancient Monument ) 1/3/67

- I

Bridge circa 1345, of red sandstone. 5 arches over river, 1 flood arch on east (Farndon) side and 2 on west (Holt) side in Clwyd. Abutments rebuilt and widened probably early C19. Cutwaters. Deep segmental arches have 2 rings of voussoirs, the inner ring recessed, the outer one chamfered. Projecting cyma-moulded band at road level. The western-most river arch (in Clwyd) has a single ring of voussoirs rising into the parapet above a flatter (C20?) lower arch. According to tradition, the bridge was fortified and this altered arch may replace a draw-span. The western (Clwyd) abutment, at an angle to the bridge, has a rebuilt eastern flood-arch. Moulded band removed from abutments/flood arches. Late C20 mild steel rail of 1 bar on each plain, flush-coped parapet. Between the flood-arches and abutments the medieval bridge is unwidened and little altered.
