Statement of Interest

A simple, elegant 3-arched footbridge with corniced terminal piers and cast iron parapet rails. The water is now channelled into two of the three arches. The bridge (not in use 2010) carries the footpath over the Polmadie Burn at the south side of Richmond Park, running parallel with the Rutherglen Road.
