Pacemuir Bridge

Pacemuir Bridge carries the B786 over the River Gryfe on the edge of Kilmacolm. It is a single arch stone bridge dating from 1908, and presumably replaced an older structure on the same site. The bridge is built from irregularly sized rusticated rectangular blocks, laid in broken courses in a style which became popular in the 1960s for large housing estates, although by then the 'stone' was a reconstituted product. The arch ring and coping stones on the parapet are smooth cut blocks however. Otherwise, the bridge is without decoration, and the parapet walls simply run into the adjoining field walls. The road across the bridge is two lanes wide, with a pavement on the upstream side.
