Mid-later 18th century. Long hump-backed bridge; dressed
rubble throughout 2 segmental arch rings of unequal size,

splayed at approaches. Stumpy triangular cutwaters.

De-scheduled 8 December 1997. Sited on line of "General Wade's road"

from Fort George. Probably built soon after 1749 (year after

General Wade died) but possibly a little later.
