Site of Packhorse Bridge above Duke Bridge, Maxstoke.

Description of this historic site

The site of a packhorse bridge which dates from the Medieval period. It was situated 100m south east of Duke Bridge.

Notes about this historic site

1 A few yards above Duke Bridge (PRN WA 342) are the bases of the piers of a narrow packhorse bridge leading to a stone causeway, now overgrown.
2 A low grass covered bank at SP2188 may represent the stone causeway. If so, the bridge site must be at SP2188. This agrees with the VCH description, but no piers can be seen there.
3 Neither the bridge piers nor the causeway were observed.
