Description

Probably David Bryce, 1861. 3-span cream sandstone segmental-arched bridge with 2 round-arched overflow arches and curved wing walls to E; adjoining West Lodge and gateway listed separately. Solid polished ashlar parapet above droved string course with ridged ashlar cope; arcaded parapet above overflow arches. Stugged ashlar pilaster piers above semicircular cutwaters with thick string course between. Bull-faced spandrels; stugged voussoirs with panelled keystones; stugged soffits; bull-faced soffits to overflow arches; bull-faced abutments.

Statement of Special Interest

Built for James Hogier of Newlands, the private bridge and lodge served Mauldslie Castle which lay over the river to the east. The castle, built by the 5th Earl of Hyndford to plans by Robert Adam in 1792-93, was demolished in 1935. The seated dog motif, together with inscription can also be found in the garden of 'Marna', another lodge to the castle, to the south, (see separate list description). The stables to the former Mauldslie Castle survive and lie to the east in Carluke Parish.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
