Road bridge over former tramway. Dated 1881. Heavy rock-faced
masonry. Single segmental arch with voussoirs and keystone,
carrying date on S side, set on lofty plain abutments to a
deep glacis/plinth. Heavy square-edged weathered parapets and
short pilaster stops, parapet c 1m above roadway, which is c
10m long x 3m wide. The lower (N) side has short curved
abutments raked down on either side. One of a group of bridges

century industrial activity in the quarries of the island,
when rail and tramways were an important aspect of the
transport system.
