Description
Section of canalised river with sections of random rubble stone retaining walls, c.1825, incorporating single segmental arch footbridge having rubble stone voussoirs. Sited spanning canalised section of tributary of River Nore.

Appraisal

Possibly originally having associations with a salmon hatchery established by the Tighe family of nearby Woodstock House (12403203/KK-32-03) in the early nineteenth century a section of canalised river forms a pleasing feature in the townscape of Inistioge incorporating a simple footbridge of some technical or engineering merit.
