The Montgomeryshire Canal was built from Garthmyl to Newtown between 1815 and 1819-21 (Josiah Jessop, engineer); this bridge (with later repairs) forms part of that development.

Splayed in plan, and in section rising in a shallow curve. Abutments chamfered on tow-path side. Brick retaining wall to integral pathway to road level on N side. Some later repair work to parapets.

Reasons for Listing
