Two 156 Et. wrought-iron lattice girders, connected by wrought-iron transverse girders, covered by galvanised corrugated iron, containing concrete and metalled carriageway. Brick abutments with stone dressings. The bridge has a slight camber. Later in the C19 the bridge was reinforced under the centre by four lattice columns with horizontal lattice bracing girders and diagonal tensioned tie-bars. The bridge has a clear span of150 Et., which was a world record at the time of construction for a bridge of this type. It was built over the Rugby to Leamington line, now disused.
