Ancient Exeter bridge delays sewer repairs
Thousands of drivers have been passing along a busy Exeter road unaware they have been crossing an ancient bridge.
The structure, under Holloway Street, was originally built as a bridge and dates from before the construction of Exeter Cathedral
It came to light when experts moved in to repair a collapsed sewer.
Contractor May Gurney had been preparing to undertake the work but repairs were delayed as the site is immediately adjacent to an ancient masonry arch structure, which is a scheduled Monument, laying deep under the highway.
