Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

Bobbin Mill Bridge, Ashford in the Water, built in the 1870s. Research commissioned relating to the structural form of historic bridges, following the discovery of possible foundations within geo-technical test pits. No recent work had been carried out on the foundations of Derbyshire bridges of a comparable date with Sheepwash and Holme Bridge. References to an earlier bridge at Holme could account for an earlier structure, as does adjacent rubble possibly relating to elements of the standing structure. (1) A watching brief was carried out over repairs to the bridge in 2001 and recorded that the fabric and construction techniques dated to the 19th century.
