Coursed sandstone ashlar; polished voussoirs to arch ring; rubble to side parapets, coursed and rendered beneath. Depressed arch springs from just above river level; thickly moulded string course, dentilled at N side; raised, tapered piers with advanced pedestals topped by tall, open, square-plan ironwork features; saddleback coping to parapets.
