1/185 Bridge approximately 130 metres south-east of Wood House

GV II*

Bridge over the overflow stream out the north-west side of the landscaped lake. 1899-1905 by Thomas Mawson. Granite ashlar. Simple single span bridge with plain segmental arch. Plain projecting dripcourse at road level supported by a series of small corbels between the terminal piers project outwards and provide inside refuges with stone benches. This bridge is part of an extensive landscaping scheme conceived by Mawson to go with the rebuilding of Rood House (q.v.). The landscaping of the nearby lake was an important component of the scheme. Mawson himself considered the whole scheme as one of his major achievements.
