Swarkestone Causeway – 15
Swarkestone Causeway – 15
This dates from the late 13th or early 14th century, Listed Grade I and also a Scheduled Monument. It was widened on the eastern side, principally in 1799, but much of the masonry on this section is medieval.
This is the southern end of the causeway, described in the Listing as follows: “The segment pointed medieval arches are double chamfered and have five chamfered medieval ribs below, widened to west in 1854 with a further three ribs.” The latter are those nearest the camera.
