Early 19th century. Roadbridge, single wide segmental arch
over River Liddel. Coursed stugged and squared rubble, with
recessed ashlar arch-rings; ashlar parapets perhaps not
original and splayed at approaches, terminal piers with
pyramidal caps.

Statement of Interest

See SRO RHP 9711/1-2 designs for bridge over Liddel at

Haithwaite Mill 1766 by John Armstrong and Samuel Halton:

designs are similar though Halton's has recessed arch ring, as

on existing bridge. Part in England.
