TQ 54 SE CAPEL CASTLE HILL, SOMERHILL PARK
4/220 Lake Bridge
GV II
Bridge taking the drive to Somerhill over the head of the landscaped lake. Probably late C19. The lower part, the actual arches, are red brick whilst the upper part is local sandstone ashlar laid to courses. 3-span bridge of small round-headed arches with low stone cutwaters. Sides rise to parapet walls with rounded coping. Each end the parapet walls curve out to square terminal piers.
This bridge along with most of the buildings in Somerhill Park and indeed many on the estate was built to a superior standard by the Goldsmid family.
