Exterior

Late C18 or early C19, and certainly post 1777 when plans for the new turnpike road were formed. Survey plans exist dated 1822, though this need not be the construction date. Wide, single-span rubble bridge with segmental arch; rough-dressed voussoirs recessed slightly below a plain arch ring formed of narrow stones. Parapets with rough-dressed coping stones and plain band below; battered piers flanking the arch. Modern footway added on W side; arch strengthened with modern strutting.

Reasons for Listing

A late C18 or early C19 road bridge in a prominent location within the town.
