(tenders for rebuilding invited in Exeter Flying Post, 16.6.1825). Stone ashlar, a
simple but unaltered design, executed in large ashlar blocks. The single segmental
arch is flanked on each face by slightly projecting, strongly battered abutments,
which sweep outwards at each end to an oblong-section pier with a low pyramidical
cap. Above the arch is a raised bandcourse and a parapet with projecting coping.
