This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records. As such they do not yet have the full descriptions of their modernised counterparts available. Bridge of uncertain date consists of a raised causeway some 1300yrds in length crossing the low lying meadows, with stone bridge spanning the River Trent. This was rebuilt in 1810, replacing the old bridge with its chapel. The causeway includes good Medieval work with sets of arches and embankments. <1> Bridge probably dating from the 13th century with 17 old arches and causeway supported by large amount of propping. Restored before 1802. Chapel site covered in scrub lies on the NE side of the N edge of the bridge. <2> SOURCES = Desc text/MOW819////<1>; Desc text AM107/Hart CR/1984//<2>
