Plaque on Linnels Bridge

  • Description

    "This plaque is a facsimile of the stone inscription on the ancient Linnels Bridge. It can be roughly translated as: God preserve Wmfoira (?) Errington built this bridge of lime and stone 1581 No idea what Wmfoira means. Errington is a local family name. The date 1581 refers to the original bridge not the present structure dated 16989."
