Road bridge over Blackaton Brook. C19. Granite. Small single span clapper bridge. The stream at this point runs through a small gully the sides of which are built up with roughly-shaped blocks of granite as vertical abutments. The stream is bridged by slabs of granite and either side slabs set at a slightly high level provide low coping either side of the road. C20 iron railings have since been set into these slabs.
Listed 1987
