Bridge over Kelvin River in Garscube Estate

Bridge over Kelvin River in Garscube Estate

This is an estate bridge connecting the site of the former Garscube House ( now demolished ) with Maryhill Road.
 The bridge has four flat Tudor-arched spans, and a level carriageway.
Note the elaboration of the piers, arch stones and parapet.
 The square-section balusters are typical of the late 16th and 17th centuries.
 The architectural treatment of this bridge reflects the popularity of the Tudor and Jacobean styles
 for the design of country houses and associated buildings until the Scottish Baronial came into vogue in the late1840s.
