Bridge. Medieval; south arch rebuilt C16 or C17; widened to east 1759; new
superstructure mid-C20. Squared stone. 4 segmental, almost semicircular
arches which are double-chamfered to the west and have arch rings to the east.
The 3 northern arches each have 4 chamfered soffit ribs; plain soffits to
southern arch and 1759 widening, Pointed cutwaters, those on west with canted
tops. Flat-coped C19 approach walls on north.

to be carved low on the east face.
C20 concrete and steel superstructure, extending over cutwaters and replacing
original parapets, is not of interest.
