Notes

A medieval bridge over the River Brue situated 100 metres south west of Wyke House. The bridge displays features typical of the 15th century and before. The bridge is constructed from rough square-cut stone with two arches separated by cutwater piers, and carries a single track minor road which was once part of a route running between Bristol and Weymouth. The bridge is 4.1 metres wide, 13 metres in length, and is orientated from east to west across the river. A document dating from 1677 records it of being in great decay. This suggests that it has been restored. Scheduled.
