Full Description

The 25 inch 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map depicts a small bridge (possibly a footbridge) at SS 7054 3737. It is labelled "Skentaway Bridge". A ford is shown immediately to the south. There is also an Ordnance Survey bench mark marked to the east of the bridge. [1] The site is similarly depicted on the 2nd Edition 6 and 25 inch maps.
