Full Description

Due to a tree being blown down on the river bank, the remains of what could be a causeway or part of a road/bridge have appeared. The site is about 200 yards upstream from the bad bend just before the Kelham Bridge. The structure is about 4m wide and 5m long, with old pilings in the side and middle and horizontal cross members with stone packing, possibly with copings over the top to provide a fine surface. (1)
Site visit, photos taken. Does not appear to be the bridge, it is possibly a weir. (2)
