Sheepford Bridge (Pre 1857)
A bridge existed at this site, adjacent the Fettling Mill (probably explains the name of the road - the sheep crossed here and were sheered at the mill), since before 1857. It is likely that the stone abutments (now encased in concrete) that support the present 1887 superstructure are from the earlier bridge.
The bridge's design is unknown as of this writing. It was probably a wooden covered bridge.
