George Weatherdon of Newton Bushel. Granite ashlar 3-span bridge with parapets,
shallow segmental arches, cutwaters to the middle piers and pilasters to the outer
pliers. The arches spring from vertical piers with plain imposts which continue as

pier pilasters. Pilasters above the cutwaters; platband below the parapets which
have neat granite caps. The bridge widens in a slight curve at either end and
terminates in pilasters that rise above the level of the parapet and are separately
