Monument record MDR9429 - Stone bridge, National Stone Centre; Cromford & High Peak Railway
Type and Period (1)
- BRIDGE (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
Bridge constructed of irregular gritstone blocks, not laid in regular courses and very different from most of the other Cromford & High Peak Railway bridges. Gritstone lintels separate the bridge from the small boundary wall at the top. The bridge tunnel is 4m wide and 10m long. On the north falling side, at 2m and on the south falling side at 4m , the irregular gritstone blocks give way to large regular, carefully dressed blocks with tooling; these blocks form the tunnel arch. The bridge is 8m wide, with the walls flaring out at the foot due to the bridge being built on a slope.
