GV II*

Road bridge and weir across River Teme. Circa 1772. By Richard Payne Knight and Thomas Farnolls Pritchard. Squared sandstone rubble and brick with sand- stone dressings. Alignment is north/south. Large semi-circular arch with dressed voussoirs and projecting keystone spans the main river course springing from stepped imposts. It is flanked by square embattled turrets with part-pyramidical cappings and has flat pointed embattled parapet with corbel table beneath the whole. To either side is a smaller stilted round headed arch beneath a plain parapet. Beyond the small southern arch is an intermediated sized version of the main arch with similar detailing of corbels, turrets etc. Weir to west is also semi-circular and constructed of brick and sandstone. (BoE, p 118).
