History

Probably built in the late C18 or early C19 to replace a ford. Repairs are recorded as having taken place in 1819.

Exterior

Built of local rubble stonework. A wide-span single-centred arch of voussoirs capped with a regulating course, rising to a central projecting keystone. The spandrels rise to parapets which curve outwards at the ends to square capped piers. The flat parapet copings are linked with iron cramps run in with lead.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a largely unaltered smaller country bridge of a type that was erected widely in this area in the late C18 or early C19.
