Monument Number 36721

Hob Uid: 36721
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Winsford
Grid Ref : SS9062034900
Summary : A post medieval bridge over the Winn Brook at Winsford. It is used by local traffic and pedestrians.
More information : SS 907349. Bridge over Winn Brook, Scheduled, Somerset 197. (1)

SS 906349. "A picturesque but vernacular bridge of two low arches with pointed cutwaters. The structure remains undisturbed. Is a low stone parapet, and roadway is 8 - 9m across and has tarmac on a stone base".

"Bridge is used by pedestrians and limited vehicular traffic to the
houses to the N of it. A newer road takes most of the traffic
running N-S through the village. There is a parking area between the old road and the new". Dated as medieval. (2)

The bridge across the Winn Brook at SS 90623490 was until 1928, when a new bridge was built 20.0m to the E, the main bridge on the Exford Road. It is now reduced to serving local traffic and pedestrians. Although the essential details are as recorded by authy 2 it is questionably medieval and it is certainly not picturesque, looking as it does rather like a double culvert. In fact there is a strong possibility that the wrong bridge has been scheduled as the well-known, picturesque Smithy Packhorse Bridge (SS 93 SW 2) some 70.0m to the W on the same brook is not noted by the DOE at all.
