Monument record MDR9271 - Stone bridge, Bunsal Bottom; Cromford & High Peak Railway
Type and Period (1)
- BRIDGE (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
Railway bridge taking the Cromford & High Peak Railway track under a farm track, which is now a public footpath. When the road was constructed, in 1967, the southern entrance to the tunnel was presumably filled in and levelled, as there is no evidence of the bridge from the southern aspect. The bridge is approximately 14m wide and 6m high, and is of small regular, mortared, limestone blocks. The tunnel is made up of one course of large regular, mortared gritstone blocks, topped with large gritstone slabs. It is approximately 8m wide and 5m high. There is an insciption on the wall next to the bridge, which reads '202/970'.
