Hulne Park, Iron Bridge

  • Description

    It's iron, and it's a bridge. From -" > Bridge, dated 1812 on maker's plate, by I. & T. Cookson of Newcastle. Cast iron; abutments squared stone. 3 round arches, with rings in open spandrels and quatrefoil-plan piers rising from stone footings. Main girder above has Percy lion at centre and ends, and crowned crescents above piers. Ornamental openwork embattled parapet with trefoil-headed panels and cusped lozenges above piers; quatrefoil-plan standards at each end with maker's plates on inner faces, with similar outer standards at end of abutment parapet. Good quality and relatively early iron bridge.
