The River Arun here forms two branches with an island in the centre. The bridge spans
both, but the boundary between the two Districts passes through the centre of the east
branch. The Bridge was erected in 1875 but is built in the medieval tradition.
Ashlar. The west branch of the river is spanned by 4 low elliptical arches, the east
branch by one similar arch with a solid portion between. Blunt cutwaters between the
western arches. Buttresses flanking the western arch and the solid portion.
Modillion cornice below the parapet. Over this and above each pier is a semi-circular
pierced recess corbelled out from each pier. The road approaches of the Bridge are
flanked by piers supporting ball caps and also an opening from the south side of the
Bridge onto the island. Photograph in the National Buildings Record.
