Lacock Novr 8th 1847


The Bridge No 8 at Wick Farm, is built according to the dimensions shown on the drawing but is not completed the Parapets being yet to be built Wing Walls to be finished and coping to be put on

The Bridge No 3 is according to the drawing, except being 3 Inches lower when I saw it last Month the Arch was 17 ft 9 In high, but it has since been lowered 1 foot which brings it 3 Inches under the dimensions given in the drawing

The other dimensions as far as I can ascertain are correct. This Bridge, as well as No 5. has yet to have the Coping put on the Wing Walls and Parapets

All the Bridges are built with good Materials, and in a strong and Workmanlike manner.
