STATION ROAD EAST FARLEIGH East Farleigh Bridge

GV I

Partly in Barming Civil Parish. Road bridge. Probably C14. Roughly coursed ragstone with stone coping. Approached at an angle from the south- west, and slightly cambered towards centre. Water spanned by 4 pointed arches (2 to centre higher), each with doubly hollow-chamfered stone rib to each outer side and 2 plain- chamfered ribs to soffit. Arches alternate with full-height cutwaters on both sides of bridge. Blind, chamfered skew arch to angle between bridge and retaining wall of south approach road. South-west retaining wall about 43 metres long, increasing in height, to carry road across low ground before bridge. Low later arch with stone voussoirs spanning tow path on north bank. One of a series of medieval stone bridges across river Medway, and possibly one of the finest medieval bridges in the south of England. Scheduled Ancient Monument.
