Bridge over canal, later railway bridge. 1819-23 for the Carlisle Canal;
additions of 1853-4 for the Port Carlisle Dock and Railway Company. Squared and
coursed red and calciferous sandstone; cast-iron central parapet on supporting
wooden pillars. Plinth with rounded corners was originally the supporting

railway bridge, when the canal closed. When the railway closed in 1964, the
wooden supports were placed under the bridge.
