Building record MDR16404 - Tramway Bridge over River Amber, Ambergate Works, Ambergate

Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

A Grade II listed tramway bridge, c. 1840. Built of rock faced ashlar with brick dressings, the bridge has two wide segmental arches of brick on ashlar jambs and with ashlar to the spandrels. There are copings at the top of the bridge but no parapets. Further arches are now buried to the east. The top surface of the bridge has a distinct slope down to the west. This is probably the bridge to a former tramway from Stephensons' lime works to the A6, erected at the-same time as the railway which runs along side, i.e. 1840. (1)
