DOWNTON CP Castle Bridge (that part in Downton CP)

II

Accommodation bridge over the River Teme. Late C18. Sandstone ashlar with horizontal tooling. Three elliptical arches, the central one of which is larger than the flanking arches, and all have hoodmoulds. Plain parapet, above corbel table over arches, splayed at ends and terminating in rectangular piers with flat capping. The bridge is about five yards wide and 55 yards long. The original main southern approach to Downton Castle (qv) crossed the River Teme at Castle Bridge. It was probably also designed by Richard Payne Knight together with Forge Bridge (qv) downstream and possibly Burrington Bridge (qv) upstream. (BoE, p l18)a (Also see under Burrington CP).
