One of 3 other bridges over the canal, all of same design. Large stilted
arch of stone, with radiating chamfered voussoirs and central keystone,
the chamfered joints carried horizontally through the archway. Projecting
string at road level and solid stone parapet with weathered coping. The
design is utlitarian of its day and without pretence of architectural quality;
well built however and with effective simple treatment of stonework.
