construction incorporating river boulders with roughly-hewn granite lintels. Two
span bridge with the main channel having found its way through the bank on the west
side and the main spans now serving principally as flood arches. Granite piers
constructed from river boulders, some massive, with lintels in the form of clapper
bridge with rough granite rubble low parapets.
