Bridge, said to be 1774. Apparently not by Thomas Telford.
Parapet and railings added mid C20. Red brick. Some stone
dressings. Seven tunnel arches, progressively larger towards
centre. Arch piers rest on battered brick plinths that curve
round beneath the arches in segmental-shaped channels. The
outermost piers on each side of the bridge retain their wedge-
shaped cutwaters. All piers on S side have stone-dressed bases.
C20 square buttresses added to some of the arch piers.
