Probably early 19th century. 2-arched bridge over the Ale Water. Rubble with ashlar voussoirs, flat-coped parapet and splayed approaches. Arch to NW broader and segmental, that to SE semicircular.
The slightly smaller SE arch is presumably to accommodate floodwater/overflow.
Extensively rebuilt and repaired 2001/2002 by Scottish Borders Council.
Situated on the boundary of Bowden and Lilliesleaf Parishes.
