  • None recorded

Full Description

A horse trough on the side of the road at Bridgemont is the only remaining example of a horse trough in the locality. In 1987 it was described as being in poor condition and in need of cleaning out. (1) Nothing is shown at this site on the 2nd ed. 25" OS map of 1899. However, the third edition shows two troughs, one at the roadside, the other almost adjacent to it, in the woodland to the west. It is probably the latter that survives. (2, 3)
