Full Description

Bridge shown at 'Thelford Watering' on Hodskinson's 1783 map (S1). Not shown on Bowen's 1755 map. Construction date unknown, possibly post 1755. Shown as ford on OS c.1887, a bridge on OS c.1904. No further details.
2003: Monitoring of bridge replacement failed to identify evidence of any earlier bridge (possible bridge marked on Hodskinson's C18 map). Traces of late C19 early C20 structure revealed. Blocks of late C19 early C20 brickwork noted in the four corners of the existing bridge (built 1923). Possibly supports for a wooden structure (S2)
