History

Village road bridge, in its present form probably early C19, though occupying an early bridging site.

Exterior

Single-span road bridge constructed of squared, rough-dressed limestone blocks; approximately 15m long. Segmental arch with projecting voussoirs and large keystone. Flat carriageway with rubble parapets, splayed at the approaches and terminating on both up- and down-stream sides in square piers; squared limestone copings. Between the arch and the parapet on both sides is a plain projecting string-course, returned onto the piers.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its special interest as an early C19 village bridge retaining good character.
