Probably an early C17 bridge, taken to be contemporary with Western Mill, possibly built by the miller to enable packhorses to come and go without having to pass through a ford. The mill is believed to be early C17; it is mentioned in a lease renewal of 1667 as a grist mill tenanted by Henry Else.
The bridge replaces a ford across the Burry Pill, on a path connecting the mill to Cheriton and Landimore via Kittle Hill.
The bridge is clearly indicated on the 1844 Tithe Map.
A packhorse bridge (or a bridge for small carts only) without parapets, on three small segmental arches each of about 1½ metres span. Rubble masonry, axe-dressed arches. The bridge is about 2½ metres wide and including the approaches about 30 metres in length.
The centre arch has been rebuilt in a rougher technique.
A very well preserved small vernacular bridge for packhorse or small cart traffic.
