Wheeler's Bridge.
Monier arch bridge, Lawrence, near Creswick.

Oblique view from low down on the bank, below springing level. The arches sit on tall abutments and central pier. These are faced with undressed stone masonry. In this photo, the join between the two longitudinal halves is marked by staining. The mortar facing of the spandrel walls shows major cracks.
