Small cobble reused in Wallington Bridge, near Wallington, Northumberland.
This panel forms part of the construction material of an 18th century bridge pier designed by James Paine and built in 1755. Referenced ‘Paines Bridge, Wallington c’ on the Beckensall Archive, this carving is recorded as:
‘Cup with groove and two midget cups or pick markings.’
NADRAP added the record to ERA in 2008, recording:
‘A groove is difficult to substantiate and some midget cups may well result from the time when it was reused in the modern bridge…’
Model created from 3 images captured by Joe Gibson (NADRAP Team 3) in April 2007. The imagery forms part of the full NADRAP archive deposited with Historic England & Northumberland County Council.
