Road bridge over the River Taw, including causeways. C13 in origin except for the three arches on the town side, replaced in 1589 (Pevsner). Widened three times at least, once by James Green in 1834, most recently in the 1960s, using concrete faced with rubble. Grey rubble with ashlar arch rings to one of the later phases; rubble parapet. Approximately 159 metres long. Sixteen arches with the pointed medieval arches of the 3m (10 ft) wide original visible behind the later segmental arches; cutwaters; platband at road level; plain parapet.
This is an important medieval bridge on a very large scale.
