Hi there,
impressed by all the arches you found!
There’s one arch I know of out of the top of my head which is not listed, its the “wishing arch” near Dunluce castle, Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland.
You can find pics online and I also have a couple of if needed…
Dont know if you’re still looking for arches though.
