DEE BRIDGE

DESCRIPTION + /

The monument includes the medieval Dee Bridge at Chester. Until 1832 this was the only bridge across the Dee at Chester. The bridge probably dates from the 14th century and was widened in 1826 by the addition of a footpath. However, it still has only a single vehicle carriageway. Consisting of seven arches, the bridge is constructed from red sandstone with a stone parapet on the downstream side. When the upstream side was corbelled out to widen the footpath, the parapet was repalaced in cast iron. The bridge is Scheduled and Listed Grade I.
