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
structure for a canal drawbridge. Increased in height to convert this to a
railway bridge, when the canal closed. When the railway closed in 1964, the
wooden supports were placed under the bridge.
