816/0/10038 Bow Bridge over River Yeo 26-OCT-07

GV II Bridge spanning the River Yeo to the south east of Congresbury. Possibly late-C18 or early-C19. Local stone cut and squared. It has a single span arch of approximately 5.5m consisting of a single row of voussoirs on either side with a very low, single-coursed stone parapet.

HISTORY: This bridge is situated on a footpath that crosses the River Yeo. It is one of three small-scale bridges located in close proximity to each other which span the river to the east and south east of the village. Bow Bridge is shown on the 1885 Ordnance Survey map and was probably constructed in the late-C18 or early-C19. (2)
