Earlier 19th century. Bridge with 4-centred arch and slightly swept wings; slopes downwards slightly to S. Coursed stugged sandstone with polished sandstone ashlar voussoirs, keystone and hoodmould; droved sandstone ashlar soffit. Squared sandstone coping to parapet. Droved jambs.
Built over lower-level route from Tower Bridge to provide convenient access to and from Pittencrieff House, then privately owned. Both the house and its grounds were bought by Andrew Carnegie in 1902. The grounds were opened as a public park the following year and are included in the 'Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes' (see above). See separate list descriptions for park buildings, including Pittencrieff House.
