THORNFALCON CP ST22SE ASH 5/136 Road bridge at NGR ST 2815 2249 - GV II Road bridge over railway. Circa 1866. Snecked, squared, irregularly coursed local sandstone, rusticated voussoirs, chamfered sandstone coping. Single span segmental arch, set at dramatic raking angle since west bank is set far below east bank. Coping at western end slightly damaged and overgrown with ivy at time of survey (December 1984), but otherwise in good condition. Spans the now dismantled Taunton to Chard branch line, opened 1866, closed 1962. Forms a striking element in the landscape and is also of historic interest as the best surviving bridge on the Taunton-Chard line.
