Snatford (Bridge E). Apart from a ford at Doddings the next downstream crossing of the Bere stream is at Snatford, where as the name implies a ford crossing formerly existed, and the present bridge probably dates from about 1765 when this section of turnpike road was constructed.
It is very similar to the old Southbrook bridge, having a pair of segmental arches in two concentric courses of headers, springing above water level.
The splayed parapets with brick on edge copings have been rebuilt on a number of occasions. Tanpits (Fig. 50F).
Near this point the Bere stream divides, one section crossing the road under Stockley Bridge, a recently rebuilt reinforced concrete and brick structure, and the other section crossing under Tanpits Bridge.
Although the parapets have been recently rebuilt, the arches themselves are older, consisting of a pair of shallow segmental arches, each of a single course of headers, springing at or below water level.
Cicely Bridge (Bridge G). This bridge spans the River Piddle which forms the parish boundary at that point, and appears to have been lengthened northwards at some time.
Of its three arches, the two southerly ones are semi-circular, but the northerly one is segmental with springing above water line.
They are all three constructed with alternate stretchers and pairs of headers, and there is an iron tie bar and plate over the centre arch.
The parapets, without terminal piers, are in Flemish garden wall bond with stone copings, and splayed at the ends.
Chamberlaynes (Bridge H). The present bridge in reinforced concrete with tubular metal parapet rails was built in about 1955 in conjunction with road widening, and after its predecessor had suffered considerable damage from military vehicles during the second world war.
The original bridge was of brick with three segmental arches springing above water level, triangular plan cutwaters and straight parapets with stone capped terminal piers.
It is said to have been "built by subscription for the benefit of the public in 1790", and to have been repaired in 1809.
When the old bridge was demolished in 1955 the rubble seems to have found its way to a dump near Wareham, as a stone was later recovered from it bearing the inscription below.
